Live $2/$5: 88 in 3-bet Pot

Me $2300 SB, BB $2000, CO $1000. CO opens $20, I 3b 8♥ 8♦ to $80, BB cold calls! CO calls.

BB is a bit fishy. CO seems sort of solid.

Flop: T♦ 2♥ 2♣ $240

Should we just check and give up? Should we bet and have them fold their high cards?

You have little chance of improving, are oop, and are vs. someone that cold called a 3 bet and called a 3 bet. Checking flop is certainly something I'd consider.
I checked and it checked thru. Turn: 9♣ I bet $80
