Thursday, May 21st - “To Go” Bar & Galley Opening
There was a wonderful response to last Thursday's “Beer & Burgers” for Thursday Night sailing. I apologize for underestimating the enthusiasm of the members and not having an adequate supply of burgers. It was so nice to see everyone enjoying the beautiful weather and catching up with friends.
One issue that was brought up by several board members is that WE ALL NEED TO DO A BETTER JOB OF SOCIAL DISTANCING!
This Thursday, May 21st, a soft opening with “To Go” service will begin. A menu similar to the Thursday Night Fun Races will be served. Drinks from the bar may also be ordered. You can eat on the deck, under the club, on the pier, on your boat or take it with you. Payment will be by club charge or credit card (2% CC fee).
Bar and Galley hours will be:
11:00 – 2:00 Thursday – Friday
5:00 – 9:00 Thursday – Friday
11:00 – 9:00 Saturday
11:00 – 5:00 Sunday
Please remember to social distance (at least 6 feet separation if not household members).
Proper social distancing is the responsibility of each club member.
Dave is putting the final touches on the soft opening menu. The menu will be posted on the red door at the club and you will call 251.471.3131 then press 2 to order. I have attached a menu that is similar. When ordering you will be given an estimated delivery time. The order will be delivered to a table outside the door.
Please be patient as we get started and remember, we are not a fast food restaurant. There are many new requirements in the Health Department guidelines for operating during the COVID-19 pandemic. The club intends to follow all of these requirements in a responsible manner while not incurring huge financial losses. Opening slowly will help our staff get comfortable with these new requirements and continue to provide the excellent food and service we all enjoy.
As the COVID-19 pandemic subsides, we will be able to normalize bar & galley operations. I, like everyone else hope this happens quickly.
