Sugarfire Smokehouse is hosting a Restaurant Rally at the Boathouse in Forest Park this morning.

I pulled into line just after 9 a.m., having first gotten the bread started at home.

I arrived back home at 10 a.m., with a yummy breakfast burrito in hand, and minus a $50 bill that I left as a donation to do a bit to ease someone’s worry.

From the email announcement yesterday:

This Sunday (March 29, 2020) in the cul-de-sac of the Boathouse at Forest Park we’re partnering with a growing list of local restaurants and vendors (see the list below) for a very special breakfast (9am-11am) and lunch (11am until sold out) drive-thru. And we need YOU to come and grab some food. We’re doing this, no-contact, drive-thru, give-what-you-can, take-what-you-need-style, straight from the heart of our city.

Just pull up, and we’ll safely toss you a burrito, donut, sandwich (or a few), or whatever and you can drive off, or toss a donation in a bucket to support the newly founded Gateway Resilience Fund to provide direct relief for local hospitality and retail businesses and teams throughout the region.
