Dining Between Boxing Day and New Years Day

The weirdest time of the year for dining out is the short week between December 26th (Boxing Day) and January 1st (New Years Day). Restaurant hours are typically a little different, and the pandemic has complicated things even further. To steer us from these weeds, we asked members of the Scout Community to detail what they’ve got going on and when. This is the running list…
