@Savage Husker that's what worries me. Restaurants are opening up to "at most" half capacity right now. That means with normal tips the waitstaff will at best make half of what they did earlier. My family is not going to out to eat as long as there is pick-up available. I'll have to find it, but I believe it was Grub Hub that put out some numbers showing that dining in was crashing even before the guidelines and shutdowns which most likely means most people aren't excited about it.
To me, if I was an owner, I'd do my damndest to make drive thru and pick up easy (Jukes in Elkhorn does awesome!) and let my staff stay on unemployment while things got figured out. I feel for the waitstaff that lose benefits because their restaurant opened but then have to quit in one month because they can't afford to work there...
I've eaten at my in-laws café a couple times in the last couple of weeks. They have social distancing rules in effect inside, all the staff wear masks.
@funhusker I hear ya and with that, to each their own, respectfully. I want the option to be available for those who want to dine-in and return to daily activities. I am not jumping at going out, but we needed it for our sanity, and I’ve been gauging my activities from there, still primarily just groceries and Lowe’s.
There are things I agree with and things I disagree with and before I go political, I’ll leave it at that.
Continue to stay safe and healthy!
