We can all admit there are things we’ve been missing while sheltering in place. Adult beverages doesn’t have to be one of them. Plenty of local restaurants are offering beer, wine and cocktails for delivery and takeout along with your favorite dishes — just in time for Father’s Day.
Stowaway Tiki Bar inside Union Market Tustin at The District is open for food, beer and tiki cocktail takeout Tuesdays and Fridays from 4 pm to 8 pm. Pick up a Bahama Mama batched for two or four, and Spam musubi or a fried chicken sandwich with pineapple slaw. Grab a $3 beer or get one free when you buy three. Email orders to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 657-208-2088 with a pickup time. As a bonus, you’ll get a free roll of toilet paper with the purchase of an appetizer, two entrees and any size batched cocktail.

They’ll even throw in an order of chips and salsa. Menu favorites like barbacoa, guisados and chilaquiles are also available.
