Some state had to be first, looks like it is The Lone Steer

State:

Texas is saying "Screw it!" and opening everything back up, with the expectation evidently that Herd Immunity instead of a bunch more deaths will be the result.

I wish there was a Damon's close to where I live.

I have only eaten at a Damon's three times, but it was three different ones in three different states, and the steak was EXCELLENT all three times.

Not saying you are wrong, but I had not seen that combination before.

capacity at restaurants, etc.


No where near back to "normal" down here.



We ARE, however, at 1000% capacity for yankee butt wipes that live down here permanently who opine incessantly about how awesome is.

8PM - walked in place was about 15 to 20% . . . so very few folks.

Went to the bar - all seats were turned the right way & they were side by side by side . . . so no distancing and no marked off areas.

All bar tables were available - nothing marked as off limits.

Same in the dining room areas.


Sat down at the bar - ordered one bourbon (Woodford), one scotch (Glenlivet) & one beer (Founders All Day IPA - 22 oz) - and started talking to the barmate and the guy 2 stools down - they said this Outback had been operating like this for the last 5 months . . . . I about fell over.

All the staff were wearing masks - but the guy at the bar said he didn't wear one coming in and that he didn't carry one with him any more. And that no one says anything to him . . . but he hadn't been into a Publix or anything like that without wearing a mask.


So . . . I have no idea what is going on down here. Publix has all kinda masks required signs up - I'm pretty certain they are still mandated . . . but I have no idea.


Sorry CM Shack® if I came across as a know-it-all . . . . clearly this one Outback said they have been doing whatever they want for the last 5 months.


EDITED PORTION: yankees down here are still EXTREMELY plentiful and they still completely suck. THAT did not change with one visit to an Outback Steakhouse.

Texas is a big place so I can’t speak for all of it, but here in the panhandle, it has pretty much remained wide open.

Falls and Windthorst areas, all of whom have told me what you are relating: it's been pretty much business as usual other than a few postponements here and there.

Even the winter storm didn't affect them much, as they live on ranches and are fairly self-reliant. The kin in the Houston area have had a more difficult time but are now OK.

Last fall high school football games were mostly full, my sons pee wee football games were all packed, every weekend.

As far as the winter storm, here in the Panhandle we were mostly in good shape but the infrastructure is designed more towards colder weather and you certainly don't have to worry about tree limbs taking down lines. Down south it's the opposite.

As of yesterday, TX was 47th in percentage of residents that are vaccinated. Not sure I understand the logic of going wide open at this point. Certainly a lot of TX is isolated and the virus is probably afraid of messing with some of those crusty Texan ranchers, but Texas has some really big urban areas, so this would seem like a premature move. I like the spirit and prefer Abbott's actions over Newsom's in California, but there would seem to be a better middle ground.

Those "Crusty Ranchers" are some of the finest folks you will ever come across. The state needs to be open, just like others do. If you don't agree, stay home. No harm no foul.

No disparagement was even remotely intended. I've spent a ton of time in TX and love the folks there.Speaking of the Panhandle, I collectively over time have spent close to 6 months near Wheeler. I'll be back out that way in April. My point is that while I support businesses being open, I think it is a bit premature to go completely wide open. However, it's really not my concern and I will enjoy being with my crusty rancher friends.
