Support Apple Pan and Other L.A. Restaurants by Buying Must-Have Merch

The perfect thing to wear when ’going out to dinner’ means eating on the couch

This is a dire time for many independent restaurants. And while we totally support ordering takeout from time to time, what about restaurants outside your neighborhood delivery radius–or ones that have made the (entirely respectable) call to close down entirely for the time being? In addition to gift cards, many L.A. spots sell restaurant merch that you can wear at home for now and, in time, wear out in the world to visit your faves again.
