Is your state open for restaurant dining? Have you or will you go?

My state started Phase 1 about a month ago which included limited capacity outdoor dining.

Now in phase 2 which will include indoor dining in a few days. My bf and I took a drive early in the evening back in May to the downtown area and what it was like. Surprisingly not an overwhelming amount of people. There was really no one waiting or hanging out on the sidewalks and laughably that night was literally our first night out past 4 pm. It was 7 pm when we drove out and it felt pretty strange.

Well, low and behold yesterday, the sidewalks and street that was shutdown for additional outdoor seating had more people hanging around, it just seemed like a cluster, and as far as distancing, some people did and others could care less. I did find it exciting to see things starting to go back to the way they were however I'm still unsure of whether to go or not go.

What about you?
