I can see that. I would patronize sit-down restaurants, but it's too much of a pain in the ass for me. Usually I will do a sit-down at lunch if I have to run into Boise for other stuff. Get my stuff done, then head downtown for lunch and a beer.  I made it a habit to try and rotate through and visit different places, but now you have to make freakin' reservations - even at lunch - instead of walking in.

I was even gonna do that last time I was in Boise, but pulling Yelp out before I left didn't show an available reservation until the next day. For lunch (maybe because of social distancing space). So I said "screw this" and just stopped at my local diner on my way home.

I also had new tires put on at Costco last week and was gonna just go to lunch while I waited for the tires. Once again pulled out Yelp, and only one (Dickey's BBQ) of a dozen locations in walking distance was open for dine-in. Everything else that is usually dine-in was take-out only.  Dickey's was empty except for me and one family.

With all that, fast food is the easiest option for me, other than eating at my three local places, which are all business as usual.

I donĺt trust yelp, usually that info is out of date. I call the establishment if it shows no available reservations or need reservations.

At least for the restaurants/pubs I frequent, yelp sends you to the establishment's website for reservations.

There's a reason for that.  I've quit eating at Dickey's when I visit family in Oregon.

I'm hearing anecdotal evidence that fast food joints are actually making more money right now. Anyone else hearing this?

I guess it makes sense, as people aren't patronizing dine-in-only restaurants.
.

I don't doubt it at all.  For the first time during the lockdown I started using drive through to grab burgers & fries.  And fairly often too. 

I have gone to Cracker Barrel several times and a Longhorn's once (a steak & potatoes place,  but really good).

Yeah, they are mediocre at best, but were all that was available for a sit down.

Since this mess started back in March I've gotten carry out from my favorite Chinese place near my house twice and Domino's once (ugh).

I normally only hit face food places when I'm heading down to, or coming back from, Castle Key's place. There's a town about half way that's a good stopping point to pee and get something quick to eat. Normally BK because it's right next to the Sheetz for gas, and the McD's, last time I tried to stop there, was drive through only.

I forgot my lunch at home this morning so I decided to hit a Chinese restaurant near my office that a couple of coworkers like.

When I walked in they immediately did a forehead temperature scan. Ok...

I ordered the crispy beef combination lunch. Not had crispy beef in years.

The egg roll was meh.

The fried rice was... OK meh.

The crispy beef was good. Not great, but good.

I should have remembered my sandwich.

First paragraph of article:
Quote
After nearly one year, questions remain unanswered about whether the Chinese coronavirus was natural or man-made and whether its release into the world was accidental or malicious.

Man-made, and accidental.

Is this still really a question?

She wants a lot of things, most of which she's not getting.

But she's happy with a chunk of BK chicken sandwich.

Conspiracy Coworker's new obsession is that we'll all be forced to take Bill Gate's vaccine.

(obviously, Bill Gates started this whole thing to sell the vaccine he's been sitting on - obviously)

Not the first version of that I've heard...

One was "government plot to give us a vaccine that contains trackers and microchips that they can use to control our minds.

That was the plot of a murder mystery/thriller I read years ago.

A BADLY written and plotted one.

CC's version sometimes includes the chip.

The fun part is, since I'm not opposed to getting a vaccine, I'm just a good little sheep, ready to do whatever they want me to do. Baaaaaa.

It's been done before; I think I previously mentioned that was a subplot in the X-Files. (smallpox vaccine)  ((there were so many subplots in the X-Files))  But now they've had 30 years to perfect it.

Down in Orlando, FL now. Everybody down here is a scared little bitch. Donĺt wear a mask into a store and you get bitched out by the staff. We went to Disney World yesterday, having to wear a mask all day sucked. Ironic that the mask use is so religious among dumbasses whoĺs driving habits are far more likely to kill them.

Or "political theater".

https://twitchy.com/samj-3930/2020/10/01/doh-tom-wolf-and-rep-wendy-ullman-caught-on-hot-mic-saying-the-quiet-part-about-wearing-masks-out-loud-watch/

I'm still  complaining that I can't keep up with where to wear a mask and where not to. My default is not wearing one, but to alleviate problems, I just wear one in places where everyone does, or avoid the establishment. In the last couple of months, I've gone into the same stores where everyone was wearing a mask, then next time almost no one was, then next time almost everyone was again.

Then if I go into a place wearing a mask where it's like 50/50 mask /no mask, I get self-conscious about removing mine after I enter the store and end up keeping it on. Then last week, I pulled into a place and saw a couple of people coming out maskless, so left mine in the car, then ended up being the only one in there without a mask on.  laugh
