5. Miss Thing's Hawaiian Restaurant and Tropical Cocktail Bar

How You Can Help: Take out, delivery, 


Miss Thing's owner has done something that was amazing during this pandemic. They decided to help other businesses for free. As they developed an independent website that allowed customers to order and pay their takeout and delivery online, they reached out to offer to help other restaurants develop similar websites, realizing that it may benefit them as well. By not using a 3rd party delivery partner, 100% of the profits go to the restaurant.

The pan-Asian, Polynesian-inspired restaurant, serving contemporary and classic Hawaiian dishes, and a playful tropical cocktail list!
