Snapshots from Friday evening’s StrEATery

The StrEATery launched Friday evening as restaurants that border Euclid set up socially-distanced tables in the street. Patrons enjoyed an evening out and businesses adapted to limited seating capacity requirements during the pandemic.  As word of the event spread, every table in the StrEATery zone was filled on Saturday night.

This was the signage that was positioned at the entrance to each section.

As I snapped photos from Maryland to McPherson (next weekend the area will stretch to Washington), my impression was that diners seemed absolutely delighted to be engaging in something that seemed almost ordinary. As a neighbor observed: “It’s so good to see the neighborhood full of life once again.” Nicki's Central West End Guide Events, Sightings Food and Drink  StrEATery CWENorthCommunity Improvement District Central West End  Nicki's Central West End Guide Events, Sightings Food and Drink  StrEATery CWENorthCommunity Improvement District Central West End  Nicki's Central West End Guide Events, Sightings Food and Drink  StrEATery CWENorthCommunity Improvement District Central West End

StrEATery will continue on Fridays and Saturdays from 5 to 10 p.m. as long as it is safe to do so.  That decision, which will depend on the degree of compliance with established guidelines, will be evaluated weekly.  To stay in the loop follow the CWEScene website.

Starting the weekend of August 7 & 8: Streatery will expand its footprint to include Cocina Latina and Evangeline’s at Euclid and Washington.

    My wife and I ate out here both nights last weekend. It feels good to be doing something that we longed dreamed about doing, after being elsewhere in the world.

    It feels good to have something in the CWE that you can’t get anywhere else in the metro area. It is also the first time this year we have added something to our ‘hood that was so positive. We had to endure so many things taken away from us this year. I hope that more people will come to the CWE and discover what they can get — they don’t have to go to a crowded bar. They can stay outside. They can be safe.

    I really like David’s comments and agree with him. This is one of those great ideas that I hope doesn’t get dropped when we return to ‘normal’ (whatever that ends up being). CWE is a special neighborhood already; opening the street up to outdoor dining and strolling like this is something that allows everyone to see our neighborhood in a new way.

    It’s a shame that Evangeline’s Bistro and Music House was not included in this. It‘s not by choice of the owner or staff, so hopefully that won’t prevent people from visiting them. Ask, the link below still is incorrect. Maybe it will get corrected when another Streatery post is put up.
