GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – In an unprecedented move, many states, including Colorado, are allowing bars and restaurants to offer takeout and delivery of alcoholic beverages.
Barbara Graham, the Beverage Director at Taco Party, Bin 707 Foodbar, Bin Burger and Dinner Party said, “I’m just glad that we can keep life functioning on a somewhat normal level while still maintaining the kind of restrictions that they want us to, to keep people safe.”
Governor Polis announced Friday, bars, restaurants, brewpubs and distilleries could serve alcohol in sealed containers for takeout and delivery for the next 30 days.
Brian Oliver, Restaurant Manager at Rockslides said, “Thank goodness, I mean, it’s another avenue for us to help keep employees employed.”
Barbara said it’s impacted business, “If we had not been able to sell alcohol the business wouldn’t, we would have closed by now, we wouldn’t be open anymore.”
The City of Grand Junction has implemented takeout parking along 6th, 5th, 4th and 3rd Streets off of Main Street, in order to accommodate customers and help local businesses.
Barbara said, “I just want to encourage everybody to engage in the restaurant industry in a way that still feels like it used to, but just do it from home.”
Brian said, “Support your local restaurant, we need the help right now.”
