The tri-state governors (CT-NY-NJ) have ordered that all gyms, movie theaters, casinos, bars and restaurants be closed beginning at 8 p.m. today. Bars and restaurants can continue to fulfill takeout orders.
In response, the Orange Ale House, 517 Boston Post Road, Orange is offering curbside pickup of sandwiches (right now, with St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner their famous Corned Beef is HUGE).
On Facebook, owner Jim Hassenmayer posted, “Today is going to be a big push for Corned Beef and cabbage or a Corned Beef Ruben or just a Corned Beef on rye. And as much as the governor has required us to be closed we are going to try to offer as much Corned Beef as possible today.”
“Moving forward we will be open and have takeout service, including curb service￼￼￼. We have delicious food including phenomenal pizza.” In addition, he said, “Local delivery will be available starting tomorrow (Tuesday, March 17). So for now come in and enjoy but wash your hands.”￼
Call the restaurant at 203-795-0707 to place an order and again when you arrive and someone will bring your food out to you. We’ll update their plans as the Gov’t Shut-down continues.
