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.”
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.
