Cucina Supports Locals & So Can You
In addition to fine food and wine for dining in, Cucina Wine Bar now offers online Deli takeout ordering from their website as well as items like pizza kits to take home from talented Chef Joey Ferran.
I thought I should share this important message from the good folks at Cucina: a reminder of the importance of supporting local businesses that goes beyond that particular local business.
Here’s what they had to say: “Do you realize that when you shop at a local business it isn’t just THAT business and employees that are affected? Cucina employs local workers, buys from local suppliers, who buy from local producers. It’s a huge circle of trust – and it’s surrounded by all of YOU! So please, please think LOCAL this holiday and every other season. It keeps us ALL in the circle. We have gift cards, daily food specials, take and makes, and online ordering to make life easier for you and your loved ones!”

The Winter Market is following safe COVID-19 protocols including spacing vendors at least 10 feet apart, requiring masks, sanitization of surfaces every 30 minutes, one shopper per household, social distancing and others.
Log Haven’s Winter Patio Dining
Even in cold winter weather, a lot of folks are still choosing to dine outside at restaurants. The team at Log Haven have made that easier to accomplish by transforming their large outdoor patio into a heated Winter Conservatory.
According to the Log Haven owners, “We bring in fresh mountain air through the heater vents. With warm fires and views to the waterfall, it is a beautiful and intimate location with clean air in a magical setting. Available nightly for regular dining. Also available for private events. Please email email@example.com or call 801-272-8255 for more information.”
Additional indoor dining areas are available for holiday celebrations at Log Haven with packages for private family events of 10 to 40 guests in the Winter Conservatory, Large Rains Room and Small Rains Room. Of course, Log Haven is also open to the public for safe dining with COVID-19 protocols in place.
