The novel coronavirus COVID-19 is forcing us to rethink how we do just about everything, including eating. Know that most Houston restaurants, bars, breweries, cafes, and other eateries are operating as normal right now, and some of them are offering specials, discounts, and trying new things to get people food and drink.
We're keeping a running list (if you want to share what your spot is doing, just email Timothy Malcolm at [email protected]).
Now, keep in mind this disclaimer:
- If you're sick or feeling sick, don't go out in public.
- Whether or not you're sick, avoid large groups of people. Exercise caution when visiting a restaurant or establishment.
- Keep a distance from people as much as possible.
