Well Covid times demand new thinking.
Here is one strategy that I use when sitting at a bar and wanting my social distance
This works for a single or a couple.
I live in Florida on the beach below Daytona
It is the wild, wild, west in Florida. People are shoulder to shoulder at bars and restaurants. Everybody feels immortal, we ain’t getting no fricking Covid?
Science proves otherwise.
So when I did one of my first shows in Naples this year, I went to one of my fav restaurants, Bonefish Grille, great fresh fish and awesome libations.
Well, the bar was packed. I slid into a chair near the end, by myself.
There was an empty chair to my left, and then it was packed to the other end of the bar.
So, I ordered two draft beers, and when they arrived, I put one in front of the empty chair to the left. Of course I drank the other.
Worked all night. Nobody came and tried to sit in the chair. If somebody had asked if the chair was available, I would have told them my brother was coming any minute. It works.
I have employed this strategy everywhere I go in the Pandemic. It works like a charm.
In the photo I posted for this blog I am at the Ocean Breeze bar and grille in New Smyrna right on the ocean. It is Monday Monday which means all drinks and food are half price at the bar, for men. The place is packed.
Notice, to the left is a draft and to the right is another draft. My tequila is in the middle where I sit.
I figure my life is worth more then two drafts. All the the bartenders love my strategy.
Most, would just put a glass of water in front. But I will eventually drink most of both drafts and then go home and have a great afternoon nap.
Try it out, it works.
