During this extremely trying and uncertain time of global pandemic, it is important for people to find means of comfort. Exercise, Netflix, and cleaning & organizing are all forms of self-care. And while the unfamiliar becomes the norm, finding the familiar can seem daunting.
We here at the Wilmington Ale Trail want to make sure that Wilmington area locals know what resources are available to them, specifically in the way of food and beverage. We’ve compiled a list that will be updated daily if not more.
And while we encourage everyone to patron these establishments safely and in good health, we would also like to remind everyone that bars and restaurants must remain in compliance with the ordinance issued by Governor Cooper. Putting pressure on bartenders to serve beverages on-premise only puts them in an awkward position to say “no.”
We can’t wait to raise a glass with everyone once this is all over. In the meantime, we offer a socially distant “cheers.”
