Outdoor dining in NYC is the norm? | #inthesix to follow suit? | Suit up

CAFETO - PROFOUNDLY IMPORTANT. STAY CLOSE TO THEE CURB? 

Yes, close to the curb is getting a new cozy feel in Toronto. Even when some dips in temperature, people are still living it outdoors. Well, isn't that what Americans think Canadians are: outdoorsmen, lumberjacks, maple syrup swiggers and beavers living amongst us?

A Little More Diverse 

Yes, we like to think so. But Toronto and NYC always draw comparisons and certainly outdoor dining appears to be a way forward through the times.

De Blasio Blazing a New Path 

Extending that lifeline. Mayor Tory of Toronto has dubbed it CafeTO and down in NYC it is called "The Open Restaurants program" which has allowed more than 10,300 restaurants citywide to offer outdoor dining by setting up tables on sidewalks, in streets and in other public spaces.

Old with the old and in with the new. 

“Open Restaurants was a big, bold experiment in supporting a vital industry and reimagining our public space — and it worked,” Mr. de Blasio said. “As we begin a long-term recovery, we’re proud to extend and expand this effort to keep New York City the most vibrant city in the world. It’s time for a new tradition.”

NYC TO RESTART INDOOR DINING 

Well, Toronto was a little quicker with that regime.

The program has allowed restaurants to generate at least some income as they struggle to pay rent and keep some workers on the payroll. Indoor dining has been banned since the city was shut down by the pandemic, but is scheduled to restart next week at limited capacity.

90 PERCENT IN NYC HAVE NOT PAID FULL RENT

Well, how could they: think how hard they had to shut down? When you got two international airports in JFK and La Guardia, there is some serious "small world after all type feel!" 

So don't feel so bad about it #inthesix - and major props to those that have battled through against all odds! 

OUTDOOR DINING SAVES JOBS - SAVES LIVES 

The outdoor dining program has saved an estimated 90,000 restaurant jobs citywide, according to city officials.

CREATIVE NEW VISION FOR PUBLIC SPACE 

Yes, listen to Fauci down there and outdoors is better than indoors particularly when you are rolling in the NYC. And the same thing we love about New Yorkers is that fast paced style can be a little bit of an issue if you are indoors. 

 So next time you are thinking of staying in and being stuck to your couch, venture out in a safe fashion and show love to those restaurants and wine bars, of course with which we have connections (humour intended as everyone needs love), and sample some food and wine outdoors. Support the backbone or at least one of the major veterbrae of our economy here in Toronto and Ontario as a whole.

  • Cool website!

    My name’s Eric, and I just found your site – victorywineandspirits.com – while surfing the net. You showed up at the top of the search results, so I checked you out. Looks like what you’re doing is pretty cool.

    But if you don’t mind me asking – after someone like me stumbles across victorywineandspirits.com, what usually happens?

    Is your site generating leads for your business?

    I’m guessing some, but I also bet you’d like more… studies show that 7 out 10 who land on a site wind up leaving without a trace.

    Not good.

    Here’s a thought – what if there was an easy way for every visitor to “raise their hand” to get a phone call from you INSTANTLY… the second they hit your site and said, “call me now.”

    You can –

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithwebvisitors.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s why we built out our new SMS Text With Lead feature… because once you’ve captured the visitor’s phone number, you can automatically start a text message (SMS) conversation.

    Think about the possibilities – even if you don’t close a deal then and there, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Wouldn’t that be cool?
