I check back in with Megan Rickerson, Operating Owner of Someday Bar + Restaurant in Brooklyn, 3 months into operating as a "To Go Only" business due to the Covid shutdown, and just as she opens up to host guests via Outdoor sidewalk seating in Phase 2.
Megan is also about a 10 minute walk from what was the center of the BLM protests that began at the end of May, so she provides insight into what it was like operating a business amidst all of the crowds, as well as the failures of the PPP program, and what she sees ahead as NYC enters a new phase for the bar and restaurant business.
Follow Someday bar @SomedayBarNYC on Instagram to check out the awesome bottle auctions she is doing to support her staff, and important local causes.
