The stars have obviously aligned in our favor (for once) and fate has destined that the day set aside to celebrate the great American pastime of take-out would just happen to occur when every intelligent person is telling you to stay away from people!  It's like the cosmos is also saying "Maybe you should stay in."

Today is the Great American Take Out.  It's an honest-to-goodness holiday you celebrate by eating out!  So simple, so delicious, so socially distant, and so helpful to your favorite restaurant at the same time.

According to, organizers are asking consumers to take these 3 steps:

  • Post on social media in advance of the event, encouraging friends and followers to take part with the Hashtag #TheGreatAmericanTakeout.
  • Engage friends, family and colleagues to support their local restaurants by ordering takeout meals.
  • Order delivery or pick-up for at least one meal on Tuesday, sharing photos on social media and tagging them with #TheGreatAmericanTakeout.

Tonight's the night to celebrate your favorite local eatery from a safe distance!  It's a win-win!
