This pandemic has been extremely tough on small businesses, but especially the restaurant industry. I was apart of this industry for many years before and even during my time as a radio dj. My heart broke for my friends who were servers and bartenders during this pandemic. First no indoor dining was allowed, but outdoor dining was allowed. Then, indoor dining was limited and the weather got chilly, so no one really wanted to do outdoor dining anymore. Some restaurants even closed for good or I keep reading that some restaurants are going to be closed for the winter season because they will actually lose less money that way. I hope things get better this spring and these restaurants and staff can bounce back. I think whenever we can support these local restaurants we should, whether it's safely dining in, or ordering takeout.
