Eat at one of the listed Middlebury and Bristol “dining partners” on either of those two days and receive a free special treat if you bring in a new, unwrapped toy that will be made available, for free, to children from low-income families through HOPE’s holiday gift shop on Boardman Street in Middlebury.
Mary’s at Baldwin Creek in Bristol and Two Brothers Tavern in Middlebury will both be offering a free dessert to diners bearing toys, Bristol Cliffs Café will offer a free espresso drink, Mister Ups Restaurant will offer a free Cookie Skillet or Mud Pie, and Rosie’s Restaurant will provide a free small sundae.
