Blue Tavern hopes to open again when coronavirus ebbs

Special to the Tallahassee Democrat

2020年欧冠赛程表When we closed March 16, we really thought we would be open again in a few weeks. So we deep cleaned the bar, repainted the bathroom, and did some other repairs on the inside.

2020年欧冠赛程表A few weeks later as the pandemic worsened, we realized we wouldn’t be able to open on the inside. So we laid down some beautiful centipede grass, reconfigured the drainage area, purchased outdoor furniture and painted the backyard exterior.

2020年欧冠赛程表When the COVID-19 cases have significantly decreased and it is reasonably safe, then it will be time to reopen Blue Tavern. We are licensed as a restaurant but are primarily a bar with less than 50% of income in food sales. Even if we foolishly wanted to reopen, bars are correctly mandated to be closed. We wait.

Most importantly, we thank the many people who have donated so generously. It enabled us to make the backyard improvements and your encouragement reminds us that this too shall pass.

Maybe we can’t be “A Room Full of People” right now. But hopefully soon, Blue Tavern will again be a tent, a sanctuary — a tavern for all.
