Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas has granted local restaurants one more hour to do biz during the pandemic. Last call is now 10PM.
Apparently, kicking customers out during a Chiefs game is even more dangerous than COVID-19.
And so . . .
THANKS TO MAYOR Q FOR ANSWERING TKC'S QUESTION!!! TURNS OUT COVID ISN'T MORE DEADLY AFTER 10PM!!!
Here's the report buried in Friday news so everyone forgets the debate and the argument over "science" amid the pandemic . . .
Deets . . .
Bill Teel, executive director of the Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association, said restaurant staff can now take orders up to 10 p.m. but must have all customers out of the building by 11 p.m.
Previously, Kansas City restaurants were required to close for dine-in service by 10 p.m. under the city’s latest COVID-19 restrictions.
A spokesperson for Mayor Quinton Lucas said in order to remain consistent with neighboring jurisdictions, Kansas City has “only clarified that the 10 p.m. restriction means that no food or drink shall be served after 10 p.m., and that patrons can finish their visit in a reasonable amount of time.”
Restaurants and bars will not be able to take orders or sell drinks after 10 p.m., but it will give customers more time to finish their meals.
Carryout, drive-thru and delivery services can continue past 10 p.m.
And so . .
It seems that so many blood curses and insults exchanged betwixt supporters of Mayor Q vs. the restaurant biz were merely part of the "scientific method" as denizens of the Kansas City discourse worked toward a solution during these "dark days" of Winter.
