“It felt almost a little bit too normal inside.”

July 30, 2020

As the crackdown begins for bars not following social distancing, mask and occupancy guidelines aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19, we talk to the owner of one bar who voluntarily shut down the inside — again. Why he says they made the move, what he wants bar patrons to keep in mind and the reasons he actually has a heart for the rule breakers.

 

Then, we'll talk food news, tasty collabs, a big Dori cooking win and your weekend planner.

The pandemic has taught us a lot of things and made us realize how much we take for granted; that includes a plate of food. Not just at a restaurant or one you've cooked up yourself: anything at all. Food insecurity has skyrocketed as a result of the pandemic's economic shutdown, so we check in with Operation Food Search about how they're meeting the need, why this has become such a problem, and where we can help.

 

EPISODE NOTE: Since recording this episode, Salt + Smoke announced it would be reopening all locations on Thursday, July 23.
