NICK EICHER, HOST: Will the restaurant industry bounce back as the economy starts to reopen?
A little bar and grill in Ocean City, Maryland, is doing its part. And it’s using giant, bouncy inner-tubes to do it.
The restaurant is “Fish Tales” and it hired an event-planning company to come up with the idea. So picture this:
Imagine bumper cars at the state fair. Except these are bumper tables: Giant inner tubes surround the tables and stand about waist high. The tables are propped up with metal legs and patrons pop up through a hole cut right in the middle of the table. One person per table, voilà, distancing. But wheels, so it’s social.
AUDIO: [Sound of wheels skittering around]
So you can hear patrons skittering around, safely six feet apart, but still enjoying the party atmosphere, not to mention fresh seafood.
So far, the new tables have been a big hit and the restaurant is hoping for a big bump in revenues, so to speak.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
