As the state begins the process of slowly re-opening, we still need to do our part and sit tight, in order to keep each other safe. That’s why we we’ve got another round-up of virtual and/or socially distant activities this month. Our community is relying on us, both to keep the virus at bay and to still support our local economy in a safe and responsible way. Read on for 5 ways you can #shoplocal and #explorelocal while staying safe.

Leon’s Garage re-opens for carry-out
Head out to Leon’s for growler refills and tasty pub food to go! Starting May 1, this local fav is re-opening their doors for carry-out.

Date night to go at Dalton Union
Dalton Union will continue to offer carry-out wine and beer. Order online and pick up seven days a week, or drop in during their open hours – Friday 2-8 p.m., Saturday 2-8 p.m., Sunday 2-5 p.m. They’ll also host food trucks like Greek Village on the Go, every Saturday night from 5-8 p.m.

Movie night at the drive-in
Up the road in Kenton is the beloved Hi Road Drive-In. This classic drive-in theater is re-opening soon and is the perfect socially distant activity.
