Curfew Lifted On WNY Bars and Restaurants
Summer is rapidly approaching but that doesn’t mean the weather conditions in Buffalo, NY will always be ideal for outdoor dining. Just last week, we were bundling up because the temperatures dropped dramatically and this could happen at anytime, yes, even during the summer.
About 5 months ago, the food service industry has been moved from the “orange zone” to “yellow” by the Erie County Department of Health allowing just about all restaurants to seat up to 50% of it's capacity but a curfew was still being imposed. Now, owners of Bars and Restaurants in Western New York are able to resume normal hours seeing as though the curfew on indoor dining has finally been removed.
Of course there’s limitations that are still being enforced when it comes to the capacity as well as social distancing rules, but many of the area’s restaurants are expressing relief and are excited to be able to get back to some sort of normalcy especially when it comes to Buffalo’s nightlife. Some restaurants are even re-opening their doors for the first time since the pandemic hit such as Frizzy’s Bar and Grill, who felt it didn’t make sense financially wise to remain open while such stringent restrictions in place.
Previously the curfew for bars and restaurants was 12a but you can now chat it up with your family and friends while enjoying your favorite meal and/or drink, without worrying about a curfew! Be sure to enjoy responsibly and double check the hours and policies with the establishment before heading over.
