For sure now McG is again a year older than me (by 6 months). Not sure he ventured out for the occasion under the circumstances we are all in right now.
Hoping we all can make it to subsequent birthdays this year and beyond. For now it seems to be a crap shoot and a game none of us expected to have to play.
11 weeks agoHappy Birthday Gerry!!!!!
11 weeks agoNot too many places open to celebrate unfortunately. Hopefully a month or two and this will have run its course.
11 weeks agoWell - we do have 2,600 bars, music bars, and restaurants here in about a 40 mile radius, so there were plenty of good drinking and eating places partying. I did go to my Patio`s place and have a number of wines. Great place. All the places are closed as of 5:00pm today. Until further notice. Many of them are setting up some sort of curb service - you just are locked outside. My places are putting up tables and chairs and serving through the window. My favorite Italian place is set up and going strong. I have reserved 4 seats for Saturday night. The closing probably put many more that 30,000 people out of work. Folks that can use the money. Not counting suppliers and people that do the outside stuff for all these places.
11 weeks agoI figured they had everything closed by now, McG. Ours are still open for now but most are starting to do take-out only. I guess we`ll see how long they drag this panic out.
11 weeks agoCan`t go on for too long. The number of people both in the restaurant industry and supporting it is huge. Most - no paycheck equals a big problem.
11 weeks agoA lot of small businesses are going to hurt before this is over.
11 weeks agoVT - You might look into trading your week in for a fall week. As of now all is quiet on the restaurant front. A number of places are serving to=go orders out the door. Gonna have to get pizzas Sat. night. I will sure miss my wine and good company Sat.
11 weeks agoI haven`t canceled my reservation yet although I did correspond with the owner, and told him in view of all that is going on that I may not be coming. Because I didn`t think this think was going to be over by the 3rd week in May. He said he understood , but I don`t know how much of my money will get refunded.

Well, hopefully the owner does you right and gives you a full refund. Lots of folks are gonna take the "pipe" over this deal for reservations they have made.
I would like to believe that the gov`t will come down on any of those that try to (f over) anybody that has spent their money for any kind of trip and given the current situation, they cannot get there.
We will see how all that goes down.

It seems that sometime on Friday, I created the above posting. Given that there aren`t that many (sports) to see on TV and many places are (shut down), meaning there are not many bars open either.
It would seem to me that the few "Zoners" that are typically on here would be wanting to add their thoughts...........Guess they must be out there (in a waiting line) trying to buy some T.P.
