Delivery for Pope Week
Planning to hole up in your apartment or house while the Pope is in town but worried about how you’ll get your favorite restaurants delivered to your front door? Well that’s a legitimate worry, because it won’t be easy.
DiningIn is limiting its delivery areas during the Pope’s visit now through Thursday and will not offer delivery at all between Friday, September 25th through Sunday, September 27th.
Caviar just sent out an email explaining that delivery will be unavailable from 2:30pm on Friday, September 25th through Sunday, September 27th and are suggesting users order some refrigeratable meals now.
Postmates says it is business as usual as they are relying mainly on bike-based couriers who should be less affected than cars. They do however warn that there may be some delays.
Tiffin, which has made its name in delivery has come up with an interesting way to deliver over the weekend. If you are in the vehicle exclusion zone and jonesing for Indian, Tiffin will meet you halfway. The Northern Liberties and South Philadelphia Tiffin locations will be delivering to rendezvous locations at Broad and Fairmount and Broad and Bainbridge. You’ll have to put pants on but you won’t have to figure out how to turn on your oven.
Lunch orders must be placed by 11 a.m. for pick-up between 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. And dinner orders must be placed by 4 p.m. for pick-up between 6 and 7 p.m.
