Looks like those who can't offer outdoor dining will be facing tough times for the next 6 weeks.

I am not surprised, I have seen many restaurants closing and a lot of shops too. What to say? This quarantine and the situation in every county is destroying all the economy worldwide.

Yeah, this is going to be a tough winter for a lot of individuals. The small independent businesses are going to tested like never before. I hope the good ones get creative with offerings and approach. I also really feel for those smaller and mid-sized cities, like Easton and Allentown, that have been making a comeback in recent years. This could be back-breaking for their continued re-growth.

Cities like Philly will always bounce back. Whether or not the same venues exist when the dust clears is a question, but something will exist in most of these spots currently occupied by restaurants/pubs. I'm starting to see savvy developers and those with partners/deep pockets use this downtime to build new venues or reimagine existing spots in preparation for spring 2021. And of course, the residential building continues unabated.

Hey, the way the real estate market is going around the Philly region, that alone might be able to float the economy until vaccine time.

True. I was thinking about moving to NYC before Toronto(they have more professional creative jobs, and jobs that don't require a driver's license) and I see that those prices have been going down. Maybe once I pay off some debt, maybe I can take advantage of those low prices. I probably won't be moving anywhere until this is all over. By that point, I want to go to Toronto, and it is doable once the debt is paid. Maybe I'll look at WFH job to get the professional experience I need.

Anyway, I am a mod of the Lehigh Valley sub on Reddit. I keep up to date with happenings around the Lehigh Valley and right now they're not as strict as Philadelphia. Gatherings are limited, but indoor dining is still allowed for now, as well as flea markets at a cap. Christmas City is still operating, although the season ends in a few weeks. Who knows what will happen in a few weeks, however. I'm hoping not much because they've really made a comeback.

This year, I'm planning on buying gift cards for the holidays and to have for 2021. I'll most likely order from small businesses too. I've been buying a lot of scrapbook supplies from Scrapbook.com, and I'm trying to find local crafters.

De gustibus non disputandum est, but apparently, they satisfy enough customers with their food and service to remain in business.

That space actually has a history of eating restaurants. Positano Coast is the second go-round for the Lamberti family in that space; its first, Pasta Blitz, lasted about four years. I forget what preceded it, but before that, the space housed a string of Steve Poses establishments with rather short lives. I think Positano Coast has been just about the most successful of the restaurants that have occupied that space.

I've only been there for Happy Hour in the summer, when they have the fans blowing outside.

Great ambiance. Food was not bad, not really outstanding either. I noticed a lot of Italian families there.
