You might not be able to dine at your favorite restaurant, but you can still enjoy some of their beverages.
Late last month, Gov. Tom Wolf signed HB 327, now known as Act 21, into law, allowing bar and restaurant licensees to temporarily sell prepared beverages and mixed drinks to go.
The rule will expire after the COVID-19 disaster emergency ends and a business reaches 60% capacity, and Pennsylvania’s open container law still applies (for details, visit governor.pa.gov). But in the meantime, many Northeast Pennsylvania restaurants and bars have started selling mixed spirits, beer and wine with takeout food orders. Here’s a look at some of the offerings.

The 16th Ward
Where: 306 Penn Ave., Scranton
Hours: Thursdays through Sundays, 4 to 8 p.m (orders accepted until 7:30 p.m.)
Details: If whiskey is your drink of choice, try the pub’s Bourbon Manhattan, Rye Manhattan, Sazerac or new Scotch cocktail called “Isolation” for $12 each. Peach Martinis cost $11. If you are feeling adventurous, try the Jesse Pinkman or Pirate Privileges. To fully enjoy, pour the drink over a large ice cube in a glass. The restaurant offers curbside pickup.
To order: Call 570-703-0108 or 570-955-5269 after 3 p.m.
