To help Rockford restaurant owners, The Rockford Better Business Bureau (BBB) has made some great partnerships to present virtual dinner parties this week.

Here's how it works:

The Rockford Regional Office of the BBB has joined with the Rockford Chapter 59 of the Illinois Licensed Beverage Association (local restaurants), Rockford Buzz, Ronin Branding & Consulting, and Fats Productions to present #815 Great Takeout To Dine In.

#815 Great Take Out to Dine In will take place at 6pm on Wednesday April 22nd and Friday April 24th. On Wednesday night a digital emcee will be hosting a trivia game for interactive participation. On Friday, you can sit back, eat, and laugh with the local comedians who will be featured. On those nights you can find the links to the events on the Rockford Buzz website rockfordbuzz.com.

Dennis Horton, Director of the Rockford Regional Office of the Better Business Bureau (BBB):

It’s a night when everyone, individuals and families, are being invited to dine together; to show their support for their friends and families who own and work in our city’s many local restaurants. Using Zoom and Facebook Live we’ll all be able to come together and help our fellow Rockfordians. Restaurants are allowed curbside service, pick-up, and delivery; and many are creatively using those opportunities. BBB and our partners are asking local residents to take advantage of this service and be a part of helping your favorite restaurant through these difficult times.
