Mask and you shall receive
After a six long months of postponement, new normals, adjusting to dining-out best practices and talking with restaurants about the best way forward, we’re excited to announce Halifax Burger Week 2020 is happening! And it’s not just a week, either. The burger celebration runs for the last 10 days of October, starting Thursday, October 22 and running through Saturday, October 31.
It’s no secret that the pandemic makes it more important than ever to support local businesses, and keep Halifax’s entrepreneurial spirit thriving. At the same time, the safety of restaurant staff and customers is vital. It was the right decision to postpone Burger Week in March. And the decision to bring it back now is one The Coast and our Halifax Burger Week partners make after getting advice from the Restaurant Association of Nova Scotia, listening to Nova Scotia’s public health head Dr. Robert Strang, consulting with local government and watching as new safety practices around COVID-19 rolled out.
Naturally Burger Week will look a little different this year. For example, there will be:
• physical distancing everywhere
• mandatory masks
• more hand-washing opportunities
• lots of take-out options
• 10 days to dine
But the things that make Burger Week great haven’t changed at all:
• supporting local business
• raising money for Feed Nova Scotia
• tasty burgers for days
