What would Downtown Oak Park be without the Lake Theatre? I worry about a family-owned, smaller chain surviving the shutdown. It occurred to me that one way to help carry them through this time would be to buy a gift card to be used later. I checked and found they can be purchased online, and suggested to them that they waive the fees while they are closed. They agreed and will cover the mailing costs. 

Ordering food is one way to help local businesses avoid the collapse of our local economy. This is another. I hope everyone who goes there will buy one. They will need the money now and you can give them your concessions money later. 


Also, the Book Table is open and offering curbside service if you call ahead. They will also deliver for $3. Get something to help pass the time while you are staying in.
