Who’s Up For Dining In An Igloo Outside Due To Bat Soup Virus?

This sounds exciting with winter coming

Reserve an igloo for safe, warm outdoor dining experience in Durham

Pop-up outdoor dining experiences are on the rise as restaurants continue to navigate through the pandemic.

With cold winter weather on its way to the Triangle, one Durham business has gotten creative to keep customers coming.

Unscripted Hotel has redone its popular rooftop in Durham especially for social distance. Small groups can gather inside an ‘igloo’ to stay safe. The hotel hopes the winter wonderland experience will draw customers during the winter months.

“Having this piece, having the igloos, has really kind of helped keep us more afloat,” said Matthew Whiteheart, Unscripted general manager.(snip)

The six igloos spread out on the patio are meant to isolate guests from other groups while also keeping them warm. They can fit up to 10 people safely and have windows for air ventilation.

“We allow 30 minutes in between each igloo transition. We sanitize them. We have electrostatic sprayers. We’re wearing masks. All those types of things we have taken to heart to make sure we’re doing this right,” added Whiteheart.

I don’t blame the hotel for doing this, or others and bars and restaurants, but, let’s face it, this is silly. You aren’t allowed to be inside the hotel to eat but you’re allowed to be inside the igloo because the igloo is outside? What sense does that make? It apparently makes sense to Government, so they have to do things like this.

Meanwhile, right down the road in Raleigh

Raleigh City Council on Tuesday moved to cancel any special events through March 31, 2021.

By that time it will have been more than a year since the coronavirus pandemic took hold in the United States, forcing stay-at-home orders and causing almost a quarter-million deaths. The coronavirus that causes COVID-19 is known to spread through close contact, and as it spread, events like concerts, festivals and parades have been canceled worldwide.

No festivals, no concerts, no parades. Interestingly, there is the gun and knife show at the state fairgrounds this weekend, but, then, Raleigh cannot ban anything on state property. Let’s go out to Oregon

Some lawmakers are criticizing Oregon’s limits on group activities so close to the Thanksgiving holiday while proponents of the measures stay quiet on the nightly riots in Portland involving hundreds of people.

Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, ordered a two-week freeze that includes limiting indoor and outdoor gatherings to no more than six people from no more than two households in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

“For the last eight months I have been asking Oregonians to follow the letter and the spirit of the law and we have not chosen to engage law enforcement,” Brown said Friday. “At this point in time, unfortunately, we have no other option.”

Violators could face up to 30 days in jail, up to $1,250 in fines, or both, the Oregonian reported. Brown said she would work with state police and local law enforcement to encourage Oregonians to comply with her mandate.

    It’s okay to dine indoors as long as it’s outdoors.

    Teach asks: You aren’t allowed to be inside the hotel to eat but you’re allowed to be inside the igloo because the igloo is outside? What sense does that make?

    The people inside your igloo are family and/or friends, not strangers.

      The people at thanksgiving are Family and/or friends. So why cancel Thanksgiving?

      We understand your desire to control peoples lives and tell them what to think but surely even you must admit that what you just wrote makes about as much sense as the flat earth theory.

      Try again??
