  1. Thursday, nine-days ago, I was in Thai Square, and it was pretty empty. I suspect it started with "Chinese," and quickly became (rightly or wrongly) "Asian." Last night was La Chaumière (available early, but quickly became full), before that was Rooster & Owl (full), Green Almond Pantry for lunch (pretty full), Thompson's Italian (fairly full), and Anju (quite full) - these, too, shall become less-and-less crowded in the near future, although a couple of these will be among the last to thin out.
  2. Here is up-to-the-minute information regarding vaccines in Arlington County. A member here is living overseas, and has two elderly parents (90 and 81) living in Arlington. I was going to take them to get their vaccines, but did some research first - here's what I found: At Walter Reed Community Center, they were giving vaccinations (with long lines) 1-2 weeks ago. I just went there and asked how to go about doing this, and a kindly, older gentleman at the front desk gave me a very long, non-answer. The upshot is that "they" (perhaps the Community Center, perhaps the entire county) are out of vaccinations, but some are "coming in on an airplane." He could not and would not furnish any more information that that, other than to say that as of this moment, unless you already have an appointment, you cannot get a vaccine, and they're not taking any type of wait list. The gentleman went in the back (*), and returned with a slip of paper that says: I called the reservations number, and got a recording which strongly implied that Arlington County has sent out "cancellations" to people who already had appointments (because they ran out of vaccine), and said that those people would be contacted. You can dial the number and listen to the message yourself. The first website up above has the information you need. I'm of the opinion that right now, everything is up in the air, and when vaccines arrive, there will be something of an elbowing contest in order to get one. That's all the information I could find, but if people want me to, I'll be happy to monitor the situation, and update this thread as more becomes available. Cheers, Rocks (*) When the elderly gentleman was in the back, a younger, somewhat prickish man (bald, beard, glasses), came up to me and said, "Can I help you?" I said thanks, but I was already being helped. He continued: "By who?" I said by the man working the front desk, who has gone back to get me some information about vaccinations. When the desk worker came back (and handed me the piece of paper), the younger man said to him, curtly, 'From now on, you don't let anyone past this point,' without a please, a thank you, or any deference to the kindly man's age - I understand that I only caught a small glimpse of this exchange, but the optics were not great. --- This article was updated at 8:05 PM last night, and is germane to this issue: "Virginia Hospital Center To Administer Vaccines under New Agreement with County" by Matt Blitz on arlnow.com
  3. Here's an easy way to keep tabs (no pun intended) on the progress of COVID-19. Go to the World Health Organization home page. Click on the main article, currently labeled "Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Outbreak." Shortcut: Click on the "Situation Report" tabs on this page. Today's report is #34, yesterday's is #33, etc. Each report will open in a new tab on your screen, and once a bunch of them are open, you can easily click-thru the tabs and compare the daily statistics (they're all in the exact same place, so you don't even need to move your eyes). It's troubling that in Hubei (the original location), there are now over 64,000 cases, and over 2,300 deaths. --- A very interesting article: "Who Is Patient Zero in the Coronavirus Outbreak?" by Fernando Duarte on bbc.com
  4. I cannot imagine dining indoors. It is an extreme risk activity. I feel for the bunsiness who because there is not real rescue going on. I lament the workers who are trying to survive on unemployment and $1200 and must go back to work or lose the unemployment. I seee the pictures of restaurants over crowded, with people not wearing masks {vp pence for esample} not we ring masks and am thinking how we came to this. We are putting businesses and workers in an untenable position because the gutless politicians won't actually prvide relief.
  5. Please remove this post if inappropriate or outside guidelines. I know our purpose here is to share our food & beverage recommendations & experiences, but considering what is going on, I am suggesting that we post resources that may be able to help. Im not talking about soliciting financial contributions, but rather resources or contacts to companies that can help. There is a dire need for Personal Protective Equipment. Healthcare workers are risking their well being by reusing protective gear. This puts so many people at risk. The supply of PPE is near depletion, and hospitals are reaching out to the general public for help. If you know of any resources , please share. Our outreach could make a difference. Thinking outside the proverbial box is imperative . I implore you to help if you can. If you have any suggestions as to other ways we as a community can help, please share. Concerned Citizen, Kat
  6. Sichuan Jin River is closed for at least a couple of weeks (they said there hadn't been much carry-out business). Has anyone had good carry-out from other DC-area Chinese restaurants that are still doing business?
