Restauranteur Check-in: Sarah Shaw from Sage on Laurel in Brainerd

Bars and restaurants have taken a real hit with social distancing and sheltering at home.  Laying off employees and drastic changes are hard realities.  Fastfood joints continue their drive thru services, but sitdown restaurants are reshaping their realities.  Many provide take out meals and are doing special things like free food for kids or delivering food to emergency rooms.   We connected with Sarah Shaw from Sage on Laurel in Brainerd to find out how things are going for her restaurant and the people she employs.  

Check out your favorite restaurant's website or Facebook page to find out how they are handling the new normal... you might be able to order takeout!
