Conspicuously absent, order your food to go and pick it up curbside or have it delivered.

/support your eatery and don't die.

I went into a local coffee house yesterday.  The place reeked of bleach and anti-septic.  Girl wore gloves and a mask and my cup was covered. I loved it.  Just got a cup to go but I'm making that place a regular stop.

I don't know if they've gotten around to studying the effects of mist machines on transmission rates, but my gut says that it's a very bad idea.

We have some of that lucky "essential worker" income, so we've been trying to get takeout or delivery once a day. We will continue to do so. Privatizing aid to local businesses is not ideal, but apparently the best we can do right now.

But from a limited sampling of my end of Tucson, because we don't drive around too much, so far most places have declined Ducey's invitation to spend money cleaning and maintaining the dining areas of their restaurants for customers who aren't coming. I've only seen one place with a banner out offering "DINE-IN!" Everyone else is still proudly operating as takeout and delivery, with their dining areas neatly stacked and put away for some future time when it becomes cost effective to use them.

Restaurants operate on razor thin budgets, business is down, and if they don't want to gamble on maintaining a breeding ground for germs that might get their employees sick for the sake of a couple more customers, you can't make 'em.

Most people will continue to get takeout and delivery and most restaurants will continue to support that. A lot of these places that are dumb enough to bet money on dine-in customers returning in large enough numbers to pay for themselves are gonna lose. And that's going to put more people in a vulnerable industry out of work.

Notice the long board the staff also use to avoid getting too close. ( Amsterdam)

My only question about that is how well those cubicles are sanitized after each dining session.

1 - Don't eat in a room full of strangers not wearing masks
2 - Get it to go, you morons

And a follow up question; How is that better than taking to go food home?

If I take my date home to eat rather than eating there, the wife usually starts yelling and throwing stuff and shiat.

Especially if you make your wife do the clean up afterwards?

I think Tom Clancy wrote that documentary.

///Ground Branch was a pretty good modern update by some of the same guys with some of the same maps for those who are inclined, I got it in early access so I'm not sure if it ever went anywhere

Whether you dine in or take out....

Hence another recommendation from Barr: "Thank the hard-working staff before leaving."
