A Conversation Overheard

A couple were trying to decide where to go for dinner.

"Remember, we can't eat inside - it'll have to be on the patio," she said.

"Yes, yes, I know," he replied, somewhat crossly.

"I think it's wonderful that there are so many restaurants with patios," she replied.  "How many times have we had visitors from other states and countries, and so many of them say, 'I can't believe you don't have more sidewalk seating than you do with your wonderful climate'"

"Okaaay," he muttered, "What restaurant do you want to sit out in front of tonight?"

I take this as a comment on our times and of perhaps a dire future regarding dining.  Fie! virus!  It's fun now, but it's not going to be come November when the marine layer drifts in and there's little sun in which to bask.

Locals you may well not need it, but here is a brief list of patio-ed restaurants.
