Downtown Updates


We know that things right now are uncertain and you may be feeling uneasy. One way we'll be trying to help is by showing you how our downtown businesses are handling things. Open? Closed? Open for Take-Out only? Limited hours? We'll be listing that information here and will update this post as we learn more. This list is a work in progress, if you'd like to be added to it please email (Be sure to check each business page for details about hours.)

If you're like us, you probably want to show your support but how? 1.) Follow your favorite businesses on social media for updates and to show them some love. 2.) If you're able to and feel comfortable doing so, go to the restaurants for take-out or delivery. 3.) An important thing we might want to do is to purchase gift cards from our favorite downtown neighbors now that we can use later. Many have the option to do so online, or you can give them a call (see their websites for details.)

Take good care!
