yeah we have that situation with all of our dine-in places too. The other thing that has happened is they expanded outdoor seating, and in some cases closed down a road for it! The only time I've dined at a restaurant since March has been in the middle of the road! lol.
I'm just largely saying that he claimed businesses like bars & restaurants were "fully open" and if it's the case that 1/2 of their tables are blocked off, I can't agree that's considered "fully open". There are no bars or restaurants that are "fully open" where I live so his claims don't resonate very strongly with me. Maybe elsewhere they are, I don't really know for sure.
When I've been up north, picking up take out food from local bar & grill, it did seem like they were fully open.
