As Covid-19 closes dining rooms, Alaskan restaurants pair takeout with TP and champagne

In Alaska, the spread of Covid-19 has closed dining rooms across the state. So restaurant owners are serving takeout with a side of whimsy, KTVA reports, finding ways to make brown-bagged meals a little more appealing. Sandwich spot Bread and Brew is compiling “quarantine boxes” filled with ingredients to make their most popular dishes and sandwiches—some assembly required. Kriner’s Diner is handing out a roll of toilet paper with every order. Our favorite: The Bubbly Mermaid is offering champagne by the glass while customers wait for their takeout oysters to be shucked. All that’s missing is the baked Alaska.
