Going out safely
While all these offers may have whetted your appetite and built up a healthy thirst we must remember some key principles of the new world.
Firstly, it is best to book ahead - know before you go. This is apposite even for pre-dinner drinks as well as dinner.
Good venues are busy and need to be booked. The days of walking in are gone for now… so if you try that you may be walking out quite soon and hungry too!
Once you arrive, you may have our temperature taken and you will be asked to complete a form or scan a QR code for track and trace procedures.
If you are shopping, you will need to wear a mask.
Some bars and restaurants also ask this if you are indoors or moving around.
Ordering has changed. It may be that you text the bar, or order and pay online, or sometimes there is still table service.
The key thing is to be patient - the business wants your custom.
The new world may frustrate, but it is all in place to keep us safe and nothing else really matters.
Oh, and do bring a card - that folding stuff out of cash machines is not so popular for payments anymore.
