Following the success of the previous “Dine Out and Shop Out” event on Broadway, the program will continue across the city to benefit local businesses struggling amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mayor James Davis announced that outdoor dining and entertainment

Supporting Broadway businesses
On both dine-out nights, a portion of Broadway will be closed to traffic in the area of the events.
Participating restaurants will set up tables, chairs, and tents on the street. The organizer is City Council President Sharon Ashe-Nadrowski.
“These special events are all about supporting local restaurants and small businesses during this trying time,” Ashe-Nadrowski said. “We are happy to extend the success of our recent Downtown and Midtown dining events to our Uptown area.”
“I would like to thank Council President Ashe-Nadrowski and all participating businesses for planning these great events,” Davis said. “We should all do whatever we can to support our local small business community.”
To allow for setup, the street-closing will start at 4 p.m. on the night of each event. Broadway will be closed until 11 p.m.
No parking will be allowed.
Masks must be worn, and social distancing must be observed.
