Here we are again.

Our lease is ending for those of you who don’t know, and you can find out more about that by clicking here. If you’re up to date, read on, friend! But seriously if you aren’t up to date click here.

Tuesday night was the last night of indoor service. It was a strange slow-paced night in comparison to the tidal wave of Saturday. It, too, had lots of emotional goodbyes, distance hugs, and elbow high fives. We were so happy to get to see so many of you.

We wanted to run till the 28th to give people time to say goodbye. However, the shutdown changes our plans. In a way, it makes it more simple for those of us left here. Considering the fear of another shutdown is why we left our lease. One more would have killed us forever. We could see this coming; we’re not blind. I know we made the right call.

So what’s the plan? Right now, we still have stock to sell. So at least until Saturday, we’ll be running food and drink for delivery and to-go. As for outdoor seating, we have five covered seats as the windstorm took half our covers. While we’re running, we will allow people to be on the deck. We don’t assume this will change our plans much. However, our hours will be reduced going forward as we had a much narrower business level in the shutdown. We’ll pin that down ad-hoc as we’re willing to be surprised this time. But planning for the worst is how we survived this long.

So friends, if you’re looking for the last burger or a Firebat, this is the week to get it done. We have new to-go vessels for drinks, so grab a six-pack of Onys or Mana potions. If you missed your chance to come to say goodbye, now is your chance. We will be resetting things for photos shortly so that the inside will look “classic” for a couple of days. Join us and stand in the rain on the deck, or grab some to-go. We hope to see you.

However, if we don’t see enough people, we will plan on closing it up early and being done after this week. It’s not where we wanted to be. But during covid no matter how hard you work to be safe, the ultimate control of your fate is in the hands of others and not yourself as a business owner…hell as anyone who has to work in this. So it’s something we’ve become accustomed to at this point.

One thought on “Shutdowns & Plans”
  1. I wish I’d come in before the shutdown. I regret very much, that of all the things I tried in all my visits, I never ordered a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster. I never performed that most sacred of toasts: In memory of all those happy hikers who have died of pleasure in the Marshes of Fallia.

    I will try to keep abreast of further news in hopes that if this gods bedamned covid world should ever pass into a new age, I shall know where to go to once again walk the hallowed halls of a newly-reborn AFK Tavern.

    Stay strong, stay healthy, and above all, keep lit the torch of hope, that Everett shall not remain forever in the darkness of mediocrity, but shall once again play home to the light of hope for gamers and geeks; The AFK Tavern.
