What would an Autumn in Hackettstown be without the annual Autumn Lamplight Dinner? That’s exactly what we at the Hackettstown BID have been asking ourselves, too! With that in mind, we’ve decided to forge ahead and present the Autumn Lamplight Dinner in 2020, but in a way that’s safe for all during these challenging times.
While we won’t be gathering as a large group to taste samplings from Hackettstown’s phenomenal restaurants in person, we’ve reimagined this year’s event to offer everyone a new kind of “taste.” In addition, we’ve decided that one night just won’t do – try FIVE days/nights of Autumn Lamplight Dinner festivities in the form of Autumn Lamplight Dinner specials available for purchase at participating Hackettstown BID restaurants and food establishments!
From Wednesday, October 21 through Sunday, October 25, visit restaurants/food related establishments listed on HackettstownBID.org as participating in this year’s Autumn Lamplight Dinner. The Autumn Lamplight Dinner take-out specials will be available during those dates only, so get them while you can.
Pick up of those take-out orders to enjoy at home will satisfy your palate – but for an additional, “virtual” taste, visit the Autumn Lamplight Dinner program link that will be accessible as of 7pm, Thursday, October 22 on HackettstownBID.org. There, you’ll get a taste of the inside scoop from the restaurants’ point of view – meet the chefs and staff, see their kitchens and interior dining spaces from behind the lens!
We’ll still be able to interact, but we’ll be doing so virtually and via take-out. YOU can show your community support and be part of it all by simply posting a photo of you and yours enjoying an Autumn Lamplight Dinner special. Name the dish and the restaurant you visited and even include some “Autumn ambiance” in your photo, if you’d like! More details coming soon!
How many Autumn Lamplight Dinner specials you purchase and post are up to you – the more the merrier! What better way to support Hackettstown BID restaurants and food-related establishments during this unprecedented time?
Looking forward to seeing you across the virtual table October 21 to 25!
