HOUSTON – National Picnic Day is April 23, and Houston restaurants want to help their communities celebrate. More than 20 establishments have partnered with Public Content on the #StayAtHomePicnic campaign, offering special promotions in the spirit of the holiday.
With stay-home orders still in effect, these local restaurants are providing delivery, takeout and curbside pickup options to accommodate safety guidelines.
