Thread: The Unreopening

  1. #1
    I'll get around to the Montana slot parlours in a later post. Montana started opening back up on April 24th. Phase 2 started yesterday, May 4th, which allowed bars/restaurants/casinos to reopen.

    I was sick and tired of eating my own cooking for a month and a half. So beginning yesterday I started looking at the restaurants around town. I'm talking about the ones with just a dining room and no drive thru. They were all still closed. Same thing today. The state guidelines are pretty strict, social distancing, half the tables closed, cleaning requirements for tables/chairs after every use. Looks like a lot of these places have said f*** it!

    I figured I'd go to Denny's. They're bound to be open. Not only were they shut down they had taken the sign off the building and everything. I seen a Hardee's that was the same way.

    The dining rooms for all the fast food joints were also still closed. But the drive thru's are doing a bang up business. I couldn't find a place to sit down and eat yesterday or today. Had to eat in the car.

    Looks like its the......unreopening.
    Question: Do you know why KJ is so happy?
    Answer: He has maxpenis in his ass.

    Gonna have to figure out how to get the laid off people back to work. Right now they're making more not working than when they were working.

    If a Denny's shutdown and had the signage all removed during the time of this Covid then that is exceptional. Thats just now how things normally work. Not like anyone is going to be jumping to occupy the property since Denny's left.

    Sounds like these restaurants may never be reopening. I am seeing more that in PA. 2 smaller restaurants that I considered ďtrendyĒ in my area announced they will not be reopening when and if the governor allows it here. Neither had a product that was conducive to Take Out and were priced about average. They certainly were doing ok when people had more disposable income but probably saw the writing about the future.

    One was more for gourmet foodies and the other was a wine bar that specialized in small plates. Both award winning, which we all know is nice but doesnít pay the bills. Sad for the employees, though many are making more sitting on their asses at home, at least through July 31st.

    And of course I get calls, emails and texts almost daily from other restaurants asking if Iím interested in partnering or buying their restaurants and bars. Nope, no interest in the aggravation of dealing with employees or contributing to the state government in taxes anymore. Itís a Thankless job.

    Hopefully you continue to write about what you are seeing in Montana Mickey, itís interesting to see whatís going on around the country. Naturally from people actually there compared to the mediaís coverage of only negative stories.
    Reopen America!

    That Denny's was in a bad location anyway. The shutdown was the straw that broke the camel's back.

    IIRC, there was a recession during the Presidential race of 1992. Bill Clinton promised extensions on drawing unemployment if elected. I'm sure this helped him gain votes. He came thru on the promise and delivered two six-month extensions. There were people that drew unemployment for a year and a half.

    I think Dems will probably do the same thing for the 2020 election. They are going to throw up unemployment extensions to gain votes.

    In Montana a casino is a bar with 20 multi-game gambling machines in it. Some machines were turned off to create distance between players. After a machine has been in use it has to be cleaned before someone else can play it. This is somewhat of a problem for me. I have to touch a machine to check games to see if there are any plays on it. If no plays on the machine it still has to be cleaned because I touched it. I got a sour look from one employee for touching the machines without playing.

    Also, I'm having to deal with machines with the right games on them being shutdown to create the social distancing. Out of 20 machines there might be 8 machines with the right games. Half of those 8 can be shut down. Then the four left can have people on them. I might get to check one or two machines.

    Since these are multi-game machines with up to 30 games on them it's rare that a player is playing an exploitable game. So there is nothing to sweat. i just have to move on to the next joint.

    One place gave me a mask and told me to bring it every time i come to play. The rest didn't require masks.

    It's a definite slow down on the money to be made but I can tolerate it because it's beats sitting at home. I like getting out and about everyday.
