We all need some consolation after a two-month lockdown. Though life seems to be slowly getting back to normal (what’s normal aye?), there are challenges ahead and we are facing them head-on, real time.
Bars have been super creative these two months and some are putting a little more love. We found a few special ones to highlight here that hopefully puts a smile on your face. One thing we have to be certain, is that we will get through this and soon, the bars will be ready to welcome us back again.
In the meantime, hang in there, have a drink.
