Straws upon Request Only!

Wednesday, 10 May 2017 - 3:30pm

The Local will not be serving straws with most of our drinks from now on. We don’t need to hit you over the head with it. You all know the reality of the matter: plastic is non-biodegradable and bad for the environment. It hurts wildlife, especially marine wildlife. You’ve seen the photos and the Youtube videos. They are graphic, awful and make you uncomfortable - that’s why we’re not including them here. It’s also why we’re not including straws with most of our drinks from now on.

If you absolutely need a straw – ask, or grab one from the bar. We’ll gladly oblige.

Some of our drinks will still be served with straws – milkshakes and frozen margaritas, for example. We are looking for safe and economical alternatives to replace those as well. If you have an insight, please add localKenn on wechat. He’d love to know what options exist!

Thank you for you understanding!
