Bubbles beat the chill
Looking for a better and more creative way to continue to serve patrons due to more restrictive COVID requirements for restaurants, Granny McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub owner Neville Gardner came up with the idea of installing transparent vinyl dining domes alongside his establishment on Walnut Street, according to manager Marla LaFaver. Four have been installed, with each seating up to six patrons. They are warmed by small electric heaters. Erected Dec. 19, they represent one more innovative attempt for restaurants to remain open while offering protection to the winter elements and social distancing among dining patrons.
