Do your part. Flatten the curve. I'll be reporting on Monday. Pretty irresponsible of them to not caution tape off the outside tables.

I miss DINING (note the spelling ... dine is a long I not a short one, so drop the E and add ING ) inside or out
Tired of take out as my only option besides cooking at home

Looking forward to sunny warm days and maybe some patio eats hopefully later this month ... if the Ontario Lockdown allows it after May 20th

Patio Dining during the pandemic hasn’t been as great as 2019 when we could dine indoors with family & friends
But it’s better than nothing

It’s been a long dreary winter
I am socially starved for some sort of normal

As to reporting violators ... to each their own
That’s not usually how I roll
I suppose it’s possible this Tim’s just forgot to put up caution tape etc
I have seen lots of places putting up Patios now
And not many have caution tape etc
It’s more a case of someone inside has to monitor that Customers don’t sit down

PS ... Did not vote ... because I miss both
And that wasn’t an option

You can just check both. I did that.

Ya, I don't think caution tape is required either, I haven't seen that anywhere around here. Just take the chairs and stack them inside, or if they are picnic tables, we'll someone just needs to tell people they can't, if they do choose to site down. Caution tape isn't going to stop anyone.

Moderators lick khun…
I think the source of spread might have more to do with other factors. No? Either way, do not miss dinning per se only food that's never been good for take out.

Waste of money to dine in a restaurant.

Pretty much can make whatever you want to eat at home and on the grill.

And just the thought of how much sanitization is really done on the utensils ... ew. Dirty. Disgusting.

Kind of ironic you telling someone how to spell with your unnecessary capitalizations, periods, rambling sentences etc.

Lol, ya i so got that when I wrote it
Life is nothing if we cannot laugh at ourselves

“Dinning” is just one of the words that bugs me I guess

It’s like everything else though on the Internet
And forums in particular
People’s POV ... take away what you wish
And ignore the rest

I'm guessing your stove is baller and have around the same amount of power as commercial kitchen units. We aren't rich with that luxury like you. Thank you.

To each his own. Dining out has plenty of negatives at this time. If you are willing to risk it ... by all means. Your life not mine.
