A bar in Maryland came up with a creative solution to help customers remain socially distant when it reopens.
In Ocean City, the bar Fish Tales is launching new “social distancing tables” — round tables on wheels in the shape of tubes that customers wear around their waists and roll around.
The new creations were unveiled in a video posted to the bar's official Facebook page.
“Only at Fish Tales can you find these special tables for social distancing,” a woman recording the video said.
The woman continued to outline some of the features of the social distance-friendly mobile furniture.
“They are six feet apart. You can drink safely,” she said as employees gave the contraptions a go, wheeling them from the back of a truck parked on the street onto the bar’s property.
The tables will be available for customers to use “whenever we are allowed to serve,” the woman said.
Restaurants and businesses in some parts of the country are starting to reopen their facilities amid the coronavirus pandemic.
One eatery in Washington, Virginia, is looking at a unique way to enforce social distancing orders as restaurants in the state must follow a new restriction that limits dining room service to 50% of their standard capacity. The Inn at Little Washington came up with an ingenious, yet creepy, idea that helps the restaurant look a little busier.
On May 29, when the restaurant opens, the owner plans to seat appropriately dressed life-size mannequins at empty tables throughout the facility.
In late April, Twisted Citrus, a North Canton, Ohio restaurant known for its breakfast and brunch, shared its creative solution to make sure customers are correctly social distancing themselves from others: putting up shower curtains to create barriers between tables.
