    Default COVID Opinion Poll: Restaurants

    This is a time-limited poll to capture a snapshot of people's opinions from June 9 - 16.

    Today, with what you know and think about the Covid-19 Coronavirus situation in your city, would you feel comfortable go to a bar/restaurant to eat a meal with friends from several different households?

    I was thinking of a similar poll. Was going to ask if anyone has been out yet.

    Personally, I'm up for it if my friends are, however I don't think the value is there at the moment. I enjoy going out for wings every couple of weeks with some friends (pre-covid), but some of the reason I go isn't just their company, it's also to people watch (ie ogle the hot girls and waitresses)

    Being in a place at half capacity, while my waitress wears a mask to serve me? Meh. I might as well have a BBQ and cook the wings myself for everyone.

    Yes I would, and have done it several times.

    Yea weekend one went to Vulcan for lunch with the in laws, then headed to Canmore for dinner.

    Eating out is huge for me, i could care less if it kills me.

    It's mostly a PITA to order in a COVID dine-in situation because they're still learning a process.

    But like what @Tik-Tok said, there's no added value

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    I love eating in restaurants, but if the process is going to be painful/stressful, then that takes all the joy out of it.

    Process isn’t that painful, went to Madison’s 1212 on the weekend and I just ordered my drinks and food on my phone and then they showed up. EZPZ.

    The mask thing On servers is just awkward but a small part of the process. Might get in the way of your flirting with the waitresses game.

    What's the point of eating out if you're just ordering from an app then...

    I see no added value vs. ordering in an app and eating in my balcony sans pants

    It also makes all the waitresses cuter.

    Current vote spread is 45% no, 55% yes out of 14 responses.

    Also, if a mask makes the waitress cuter, she ain't that cute . . . .

    Went for dim sum and sushi the last 2 weekends. Lack of tables means great service and food comes out faster.
