If you're like me, and you still don't have power at your house after Irma, you're probably sick of eating canned goods and junk food. Thankfully, there are lots of Bay Area/Suncoast restaurants that have power and are open for business! Here's a LONG list! YAY!
NOTE: This is a list as of about 2pm on Tuesday. As power/internet is restored, more businesses will open. If you aren't sure, it's never a bad idea to call ahead.
PRO TIP: Even though they have electricity, some businesses might not have internet back yet, which means they might not be able to process credit cards. Play it safe and bring cash.
