Coronavirus Closure Update No. 10

Somewhat good news for a change. A glimmer of hope going into August.

On Monday August 10, Fernando, the manager at Dinah’s told me that while indoor dining is still restricted, there is outside patio dining available.

So-called physical distancing rules are in effect, as well as a six person limit on the number of diners at each table, and adjacent tables must be separated by six feet. We hope to arrange as much propinquity as possible.

Our plan, therefore, is to gather at Dinah's at one or two tables, as may be available, for a more informal meeting than we would have under the more controlled conditions in our usual indoor space. We dine al fresco!

Joseph Miranda will lead a more relaxed round robin style discussion over dinner. All other aspects of our meeting will obtain. Dues are $5.00 and our special COVID hours are 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. to accommodate the restaurant.
