I used to appreciate eating out at restaurants with friends on the weekends.
My town has a large number of highly rated restaurants covering food from venues care about the middle east, Asia, Europe, and even Latin and South America.
You can take a meander down multiple town blocks downtown and find food from numerous totally different parts of the world. I appreciate the diversity and my taste buds appreciate it too. There’s a diner that serves all sorts of wraps and sandwiches from multiple Arabic speaking countries, and I guess that’s what I care about the most. Vietanamese food is fantastic, however my weak tongue has never been able to get past the spiciness of much of Tai cuisine. None of this matters anymore because now I don’t eat out. Occasionally I’ll grab a take out order on my way house from work, however these buildings have become festering grounds for coronavirus. Our Governor recently lifted all restrictions on bars and restaurants, including rules for renter capacity. It’s harder to do something with greater risk of viral transmission than eating in a restaurant. You have to remove or lift up your mask every single time you take a bite of food or a sip of your beverage, and that goes for every other woman in the building short of the employees. These venues could buy HEPA rated UV light air cleaners to give the interiors better ventilation, however none of them have thus far. I don’t even want to walk inside to grab a take out order because the air is so heavily contaminated.
