Bars and Restaurants Can Restart Outdoor Service This Week. The Old Gold Won’t Be One of Them.
Even though bars and restaurants can start serving customers outdoors again this week, the partial ease of restrictions on in-person dining will not be enough for some businesses to keep their doors open. Old Gold, the North Killingsworth Street bar known for its carefully curated selection of bourbons, is signing off for the rest of 2020. An announcement was posted on the business’s Twitter account this morning. Owner Ezra Caraeff followed up with a personal tweet, underscoring the original message about the ethics of remaining closed as the number of COVID-19 cases continues to skyrocket.
