There was a place here in town that was showing the new "outdoor" dining space they built. It is basically plywood walls and a sheet metal roof. There is about a 1 foot gap between the walls and there are openings at the top of the ends between the walls and roof. Technically it complies with what is considered outdoors since there are some gaps in the walls but for all practical purposes it is indoors. Ridiculous.

A couple of mates started this up during the 1st lockdown - https://www.thescenicsupper.co.uk/



They need more glasshouses (NOT greenhouses) as every single one is always booked up and I can't get one even with my close ties :(

>glasshouses

IMO, they'd need UV lights and/or ozone generators in each to disinfect between guests.  Otherwise, they're just incubators.

My next innovation on this idea is as follows:

Two glass houses with a shared wall, entrances at opposite ends, the tables pushed against the adjoining wall with microphones and speakers.
