Hi there my beautiful lovelies! Hope you guys are doing well and staying safe. Today I want to talk to you about dining indoor in post pandemic era.
Just a little more than a year ago, the life that we know came to a complete halt. Restaurants, gyms, non-essential businesses were closed. After over 575,000 COVID-19 deaths, over 32.3 million COVID-19 infections, and over 250 million vaccines administered, things are finally starting to open up. However, as I have mentioned in my previous post more and more of us are anxious to socialize post-pandemic. I for one, dread every day going out.
Post Pandemic Era
As more and more Americans are getting vaccinated, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has revised their guidelines for those who are vaccinated. Outdoor visits and activities are safer than indoor activities, and fully vaccinated people can participate in some indoor events safely, without much risk. According to the CDC, those who are fully vaccinated (2 weeks are the second dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or the only dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccines) can gather indoors with fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart. They can also gather indoors with unvaccinated people of any age from one other household (for example, visiting with relatives who all live together) without masks or staying 6 feet apart unless any of those people or anyone they live with has an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
Keeping the guidance in mind I went to an indoor dining facility first time in more than a year. I am currently vaccinated and was actually tired of deliveries. Hence, I found a time when the restaurant would be least busy (worked on my dad’s restaurant for years so know the general times). I went to Bonefish Grill and asked to be seated at the quietest table. It was nice because that area had less foot traffic. We were the only people in that area. To be honest it was really relaxing after a long time of strict leaving.
Most of all the food was good and the ambiance was relaxing. To be honest, after a very long time, it was nice to dine indoors and our waiter was amazing and the food was great. Most of all it felt good to see the friendly faces. As you know, restaurants are one of the hardest-hit businesses during the pandemic. My heart goes out to those who lost so much.
My dear lovelies! If you are vaccinated and can, please go to a local restaurant and show your support to these small businesses. With the warmer weather, you can seat outdoor and still have a lot of fun and good food. I just want to have an unofficial count of how many people are read to dine out. Please complete the poll below.

CAUSES CLOSE TO MY HEART
PLEASE DONATE DIRECTLY TO THE ORGANIZATIONS THROUGH MY FUNDRAISING LINKS:
I consider myself fortunate to have good health, a full-time job, and a roof over my head. However, there are still so many people who are struggling to put food on their tables. Please join me to help those who are struggling. If you have good health, full-time jobs, and a roof over your head, please join me to help those who are struggling. Whether you donate $5 or $500, you will make a huge difference in someone’s life.
America’s kids need us. The coronavirus is closing schools nationwide, and millions of vulnerable children are losing the school meals they depend on. For some, it’s the only food they’ll receive on a given day. We have a plan to feed kids, but we need your help today to continue our work to ensure every kid gets three meals a day. You can click above to donate to my gofundme page donation going directly to the organization, or you can click on the direct link to the site.
PLEASE DONATION ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN AND SHARE THE POST WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
Manna Food Center, a nonprofit organization, strives to eliminate hunger in Montgomery County through food distribution, education, and advocacy. Millions of children go to bed hungry in America every year, sadly it’s worse now! Today, 14 million children regularly miss meals — three times more than during the Great Recession and five times more than before the pandemic.
Many parents have lost their job during the pandemic. Sadly, that shows no sign of stopping. Your donation can bring relief to the millions worried about where their next meal will come from. It’s even worse for Latino and Black families, whose rates of nutrition insecurity have spiked to 25% and 30%. In the world’s wealthiest country, this is unconscionable.
Even before the pandemic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated 37 million people in America struggled with hunger and nutrition. The Centers for Disease Control reports 76% of people killed by COVID-19 had at least one underlying condition, most of which were diet-related. Diet-related diseases also fuel skyrocketing health care costs, which rose from 5% to 28% of the federal budget in the past 50 years.
Let’s make the world better, kinder, brighter. Every dollar you give will create real change. $1 will feed 5 hungry children here in the US, but $1,000 will feed 50,000 starving children overseas. Be the good in the lives of many by giving right now.
Your generous support will help me continue to bring contents to you.
