Thanks to Adam for sending the Johnny’s Half Shell Update [it augurs well indeed!]:
“I was walking in Adams Morgan today when I saw the owner of Johnny’s Half Shell painting the patio fence [both of us has masks on]. I excitedly asked if this meant they were reopening, to which he replied that they were going to try to reopen after labor day.
He said they have spent the last few months trying to make sure that the staff at all of his restaurants got paid and that they were looking at buying a truck to do local deliveries without charging a fee (like third party companies do). Overall, he emphasized that safety was the #1 priority and that it’s just been too unsafe to open.
I don’t know about you, but I’m getting take out as soon as he re-opens. Gotta support local businesses that take care of their staff and put safety over profits.”
