My wife and I ate outside at Jude’s Cocktails and Nosh in Downtown Crystal Lake opposite The Raue Center.
I’m a big fan of their sea bass. (Really hard to find good seafood around here.)
We sat next to the sign you see belo;w:
The sign, apparently on the sidewalk until 4:30 warns drivers not to park in front of the restaurant after 4:30 because people might be eating at the tables set up in the street.
But, what if one wants to eat lunch and the inside is full or patrons don’t want to obey the most recent Pritzker Purgatory edicts?
Why couldn’t the Crystal Lake City Council allow on-street dining starting at 11:30?
Certainly, the mask mandate is going to hurt restaurants, just as it did during the first Pritzker Purgatory.
