As City Paper reported earlier, many service workers and restaurants have been struggling with the economic consequences of the city-wide curfew. Dine Downtown Baltimore, an initiative of Downtown Partnership of Baltimore, sent out an email earlier this afternoon urging people to visit local restaurants: "The drop-off in business and, in some cases, the physical damage they've experienced have been incredibly detrimental. Many are having a hard time making payroll. Even after the curfew is lifted, it may take a long time for their customers to return . . . Please patronize our great chefs, bartenders, and servers."
Many bars and restaurants are offering specials today in order to get Baltimoreans to come out to eat. A list of some specials are below; we'll update this list as we hear of more specials or deals.
