There’s a lot of evidence out there showing that we should all be wearing face masks at the moment. Not in our homes while surrounded by our own “quar-pods,” a term the New York Times recently coined meaning people from whom you’re not distancing. But certainly in public, as we shop in what few retail stores are currently open, dine in restaurants with outdoor spaces and while we go about our daily business.
We’re still in the midst of Phase 2 here in Bermuda, which means our economy, and more importantly our international airport, won’t fully reopen for several more weeks. When that will be is anyone’s guess, but what remains clear is that our tourism sector must focus on the intra-island economy in order to survive. That means businesses that once survived on tourist dollars must stay afloat with ours. And fortunately, one of my favorite local businesses is offering a stellar deal for Bermuda residents at the moment.
Following last week’s post about Bermuda restaurants that are set to reopen in Phase 2, I have some exciting updates to share—along with a pair of stellar dining experiences in restaurants with breezy, open-air patios. For starters, let’s bulk up that list of establishments that are currently serving lunch, dinner or drinks on their outdoor areas.
