WHAT DOES KAMLOOPS DO when Dr. Bonnie Henry pulls another one of her surprise shutdowns?
It orders takeout, of course. Here it is, the Easter long weekend, and we can’t go into a restaurant.
The Kamloops version of eating together has become ordering takeout or delivery and posting pictures of our food on social media. Seriously, people are sharing photos of their Mexi fries, sushi and pizzas.
When somebody posted a question asking if anyone knew of a restaurant that’s putting together take-away Easter dinners, 19 replies came back: Scott’s, Moxies, White Spot, Masons and so on. Kamloops knows its take-out food.
The North Shore BIA even launched a little contest — post a photo of yourself enjoying some North Shore takeout and you could win a restaurant GC.
