My friends and I were talking about going out for dinner, now that some of the bans had been lifted from restaurants.
I thought the worst part of the corona virus quarantine was needing to cook for myself.
My friends and I were excited to finally get out and do something. We wondered how they were going to handle the mask problem since that was still mandatory. We booked our reservation for that evening at 8:00PM. We walked into the restaurant, surprised to be the only people inside. We told him about our reservation, and he smiled while leading us to the back of the restaurant. When he opened the door to the back alley, I hesitated. When we saw the lights, we walked on out. There were six small bubbles that resembled igloos. Every party was given a bubble dine in. He asked if the temperature was okay and we agreed. The air conditioning was perfect inside. We couldn’t smell the outside air, because of the portable air purifier. He told us that every bubble came with its own air purifier and air conditioner. I wondered what they would do in the winter, but he already thought ahead. When it gets cooler, we’ll trade out the air conditioning unit for a small heater. We were assigned a waiter who took our order, did the clean-up and delivered our food. We thought it would be an odd way to dine, but it was actually pretty cool. As long as the pandemic is raging, I think we’ll be coming here more often. Who knows, if the food is always good, it could become a regular for us.
