How NYC Businesses are Coping with COVID-19 Pandemic || Please Don’t Hang Up

In this episode of Please Don’t Hang Up, hosts Taylor, Jen, and Jake are still under quarantine in New York City. As a result, they call restaurants around NYC to see how they’re coping with the COVID-19 pandemic that’s ravaging the city. From a distillery going from making gin to hand sanitizer and chefs cooking for healthcare workers, tune in to see how these chefs and restaurant owners have rapidly adapted in this unprecedented time in an attempt to save their businesses and help their communities.

Looking for ways to help local restaurants while social distancing? Check out the Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation, an organization that’s using donations to directly support individual restaurant workers and restaurants in crisis. Please consider donating here:

In this new show, hosts and Thrillist employees Taylor Brown, Jen Osaki and Jake Rasmussen hop in a phone booth and cold call random locals in a select city to get the best recommendations for their town. We’ll get the genuine, inside scoop on the must-eats, must-drinks, and must-dos of your city in order to build the best possible travel itinerary you can only get from a true insider.

Thrillist means fun. We’re eaters, drinkers, travelers, and doers. We serve the curious and believe that new experiences are what drive the richest lives. We bring our passion, expertise, and taste to bear on the things that are truly worth your time and money. Life is for living, and that’s why we’re here. Today will be great.
