It's a new world out there. This past Thursday, Flagstone Bar and Grill kicked off their summer band series. Flagstone has a great patio in the back of the bar with a small corner stage for live music. I have to admit I was not sure what I was going to see with the reopening of the bars with the Covid-19 pandemic. As you walk in there is a large public notice on the door letting people know that they are sanitizing all areas and practicing social distancing. It also states if you are sick, afraid or have underlying health issues, they ask that you do not enter. Seems like common sense. Too bad we can't rely on that now or ever. When we got into the bar there were a few people in pods and distancing themselves about 5 feet apart. The bartenders were wearing gloves and wiping things down with a cleaning solution which was happening all night. Heading out to the back patio the tables and bar stools were all spaced out and people were doing a good job of respecting other peoples' space. We got a table about midway on the patio and sat down to watch Dustin Lee. The bartenders came out to the table and served drinks for us. It felt really good to be out and seeing some good, live music. Dustin did a great job keeping the crowd entertained. I ran into a few friends, including Jessi, the bar owner. It is funny because no one really knew how to address anyone - no hand shake, stay back 5 feet, and do the awkward stare to see if they look healthy. I guess in realty it's not any different than making a run to Walmart or the grocery store. Not everyone is wearing masks and you are never sure who has touched what. I am grateful we are still in a county with a total today of only 161 cases and 5 deaths. It was good to see support for the bar and some relief to local bar owners that have taken a beating during this time. I hope the numbers keep dropping and we can eventually get back to something normal. I hope you enjoy the photos !
