STARKVILLE, MS — Courtesy of the Dispatch Strange Brew has been changing with the times in order to make sure their patrons can get their piping hot java even in these strange times. Owner Katelyn Reed says that they have begun to carry items such as paper towels, flour, eggs, TP, and hand sanitizer (subject to availability) — and coffee too! — all via their drive thrus. Their stores are located on Hwy 12 and on University Drive. She went on to say that “[They] wanted to offer a safer way for our customers to grab what they need by swinging through the drive-thru instead of having to walk into a big store…We are [thankful] our customers have worked with our changes and allow us to still provide them with a moment of happiness in their days. We are constantly adapting to the newest safety guidelines and while it can be challenging, we are willing to do whatever it takes to safely serve strangers every day.”
Also in town, Flavors Cuisine of India on Martin Luther King Jr. has reopened. They will be offering both pickup and carry-out orders.
There’s also a burger contest happening. Mitchell Distributing will be holding its Bud & Burgers virtual competition this Friday from 5~8PM on their Facebook page. Grill up your best burger, take some snapshots, and upload your best pic to their page by 8PM this Friday in order to enter. You will also need to include a team name and the name of your unique burger creation.
“We’re really excited to bring Bud & Burgers virtual during this unknown time,” said Mitchell Companies Communications Manager Anna Grace Tanner. “We thought this event would be a positive opportunity for our communities to feel a sense of togetherness even while participating from homes.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has some tips to help keep all of us safe in these uncertain times:
– Many stores are offering curbside pickup and delivery services, including Walmart, Kroger, and Vowell’s Marketplace, among others.
– If you do need to go out, please wear a mask of some sort over your mouth and nose — even if it’s just a t-shirt, that’s better than nothing. Vendors on sites such as eBay, Etsy, and more are selling cloth masks, many of which have a slot to insert a filter (ask first before buying!). If possible, use a HEPA filter (e.g. certain types of vacuum bags, cut to fit) for this purpose.
– Please maintain a six-foot distance from others around you, use hand sanitizer after touching ATM’s, credit card machines, gas pumps, doors, etc. Also, avoid touching your face before cleaning your hands.
– Please respect the six-foot-apart tape lines in stores.
