Yes, it will be interesting to see what happens over the next few weeks. I feel badly for restaurant owners, and hope they're able to hang in there.

Wish you were forced to stay home during the pandemic at a 50% capacity to work and when you end up homeless I'll point and laugh and laugh and call you a failure.
