Nurture Service Sector Businesses

A friend who is in the food service business asked that this be shared far and wide. Everyone should read this if they are enjoying outdoor dining:

  1. Don't run your server. Try your best to ask for everything you need at once. Remember it's going to be a long walk from the street into the building for more water or anything else. Help us out by asking for whatever you need all at once.
  2. No mask jokes or your views on them. The server has to wear it. They have no choice!
  3. The server is wearing the mask to protect you and you have nothing on to protect them. Wash your hands.
  4. You Eat....You Go....
  5. Eat your meal. Have some drinks. Relax, but please do not sit at a table all night. These restaurants are working with very limited space and other customers are probably waiting to enjoy getting out also. They can't afford for you to order 2 side salads and water and sit there for 4 hours. Yes some people do this ALL THE TIME but please not now.
  1. Don't come out if you’re sick!
  2. Social distancing. Keep your kids at the table. Yes they are cute, but if they are running around they are getting too close to other people.
  3. Cut everyone some slack. Everything may be a bit slow because this is basically a new job for everyone. Restaurants have very strict guidelines to follow. Be kind, be patient.
  4. Tip. They are going to be sweating wearing masks all day. Please treat them right and leave a decent tip. If you can't afford to tip, you can't afford to go out.
  5. Be pleasant. You should be happy. You're finally out! Everyone is doing the best they can. Relax and enjoy!
  6. Please share!
