“It’s an awesome time, where different groups of people you wouldn’t normally get exposure to come to your place, said Cat Cannon, co-owner of St. Clair Social.

While the number of participants in the event dropped about 50% from last year, many restaurants are opting to extend their special menus.

“Because of the modified occupancy requirements, we wanted to make sure that folks would have enough time to go in and enjoy these special menus,” said event director Brian McCollum.
