Only in 2020 could “Restaurant Week” involve a month-long celebration of takeout.
Tuesday kicks off “Harrisburg Takeout Month,” organized by the nonprofit Harrisburg Downtown Improvement District (DID). It replaces Harrisburg Restaurant Week, in its 12th year in the capital city.
“Obviously 2020 is a really weird year, so we were thinking about how best to reconfigure Restaurant Week so that restaurants and diners could feel safe both eating and serving,” said Sydney Musser of the DID. “We decided the best and safest way to reach people was through takeout.”
