Five Things To Do Between Christmas and New Year's Day

Be a #CarryoutChamp

After all the holiday baking and cooking you've done, you deserve a break. Why not support local restaurants with some post-holiday takeout orders and become a #CarryoutChamp.

Try out new restaurants and menu items like the Guac Bites at Alton's Bluff City Grill. Or how about Fried Alligator at the 3rd Chute Bar & Grill in Grafton. Chow down on great barbeque at Doc's Smokehouse in Edwardsville.

Let us know how adventurous you are by checking in at area restaurants when you pick up your food and posting your food photos with the hashtag #CarryoutChamp on social media.
