Coloradans, you just got another way to support the local restaurant industry.
At a morning press conference, Colorado Governor Jared Polis announced that restaurants still open for delivery and take-out will be allowed to sell alcohol to patrons, provided they had a license to do so prior to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Details are still emerging about what this entails and what restrictions might be in place. This is a developing story.
A number of restaurants have already posted on their social media about this change, including the Wobbly Olive, which took the chance to boast about their large cocktail menu.
