Hit the motherfucking music
I learned about this song on tiktok, not to brag.
Did you enjoy that like 2 week stretch where you were allowed to "enjoy" summer by casually drinking outside at your favorite establishments with a mask and a maximum of 5 of your friends? Great, well now that is over. Incredibly frustrating for me the patron who likes to spend my money exclusively on booze and food. It must be devastating for all the people who exclusively make their money by serving/selling booze and food. I don't know what the right answer is at this point. Nobody else does either. All the news about cases in Chicago recently have seemed pretty positive. Or at least trending positively. Maybe this is right move to kick covid-19 in the teeth before the fall starts with school and football and weather more conducive to spreading novel coronaviruses. I really don't know. All I know is that it sucks.
I am a homebody by nature. If sports come back I will be pretty content locked in my home with the dog on the couch and the air conditioning on full blast. I am going to miss everyone at Declans for the planned 8/1 Hawks-Oilers playoff watch party. That is officially canceled until further notice. Stay safe, save your money, wear a mask, and hopefully we can enter Fall in a stronger position.
