Eating out

16 May

Yes, you read that correctly. As of yesterday our restaurants are open and people are allowed to eat out. There are, of course, certain restrictions, but they don’t seem that tough.

What is really interesting and, I feel, particularly Viennese is that the city of Vienna is issuing gift certificates to each household for use in a restaurant. EUR 25 for single households and EUR 50 for families. Gives new meaning to the expression “Put your money where your mouth is,” doesn’t it?

    That’s a good way to help restaurants and people who need food! I have to admit, though, that I’m not all that anxious to go back to in-restaurant dining. I miss it but I don’t trust it yet. Vienna’s different than Michigan, obviously.

      I’m not entirely comfortable with the idea, either. I’m going to wait two weeks and see what the numbers do.

    I am so envious that you chose to live in Vienna. Would that we had made it there before all of this happened. We had wanted to start the process of getting permanent residency status, but gave up last year. Now I’m sure it will be nearly impossible to get in anywhere.

      Who knows? Maybe there will be fewer people who want uproot themselves after this crisis and that will create space for those who are willing to?
