A shared off day in the middle of the week led to a snap decision for a lunch date with my dear wife Karen.
We decided to return to The Retreat in the Village of Liverpool for the first time since they reopened for outdoor business.
It seemed as if they were really happy to be fighting the virus with us.
This place is usually done up nice in normal times. Now, too.
The signs told us to walk around to the patio entrance. A couple of parties were ahead of us. The wait was not long.
Yes, the tables appeared to be six feet apart.
We took our masks off at the table and enjoyed the company.
I know I ordered the same thing as the last time I was here, pre-virus. A cup of French onion soup and the French Dip sandwich. Karen may have had the turkey with cranberry mayo sandwich that last visit, too. The onion rings was a late decision on her part.
