1. Candyland has been there since I was a child

and now they are gone. How sad.
There are many good restaurants on that list.

2. That's some shit. Sad.

Next month will be when many more close up. As temperature drops, there is the option of indoor dining with lower capacity. I know that my friends and I will not go inside a restaurant... we do go to outside dining.

funny, I stopped to think about why not a restaurant as opposed to other stores I will enter. I guess the answer is the amount of time spent in a restaurant as opposed to a store where I go in, grab what I need and then leave. Also, restaurant food is not a necessity.

I believe store closings will expand beyond restaurants after December.

But enough of my doom-and-gloom.

3. There is a restaurant in the local news today that is closing for the winter

Lord Fletcher’s Announces Temporary Closure For Winter Due To Pandemic, Sept 18, 2020
https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2020/09/18/lord-fletchers-announces-temporary-closure-for-winter-due-to-pandemic/

On Friday, the popular restaurant along Lake Minnetonka in Spring Lake Park called it a “difficult decision” made based on cold weather approaching and limited seating being allowed indoors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. ... beginning October 12


It's the first one I've seen or heard of that has announced this strategy.

4. I still order take out

I didn't for the first 3 months of the virus, but I did start ordering eventually. I'm still very careful, but in general take out seems safe. But there is no way I would eat in a restaurant or even do outdoor service. I see restaurant patrons sitting there, close together without masks, and it creeps me out.
