I mean, overall, we are homebodies anyway, but this kicks it up a notch. Now we both have lunch at home instead of work, so our fridge empties out sooner, our dishwasher runs more often. You get the drift.
We want to support our local establishments, but honestly, we just haven't been good about it. When we do, all get big tips, as the regular cost just covers their operating expenses.....if that.
710 gets a daily drive-up (not through) menu from our local independent former Mexican place. Lopez closed a few months ago with a more fusion-y place (same owner) taking it's place: Mojo. Until yesterday, we've never taken advantage of it.
After a long day and not wanting to cook, we were happy to patronize Mojo. It didn't hurt that they are also selling liquor curbside. I mean, the margaritas came in a soup container, but the tequila was strong, good and needed. We weren't complete rubes, we did transfer the booze to glasses with ice. No salt.
The food was good, but no matter how high end the tacos, that food just doesn't travel well. They needed to drain some of the braising liquid.
That said, they were extremely grateful for the support. We will have to make an effort to continue this in the upcoming weeks. It's important to keep the independents alive.
