COMMENTARY Have you had your vaccination(s)? Then please come to the restaurant. If you are not a fan of Dennys, think about this: we cannot move to the Casino, unless we have 25 people attending on a regular basis (because they would open early for us). Right now, we average 10. So until members come to Dennys, plan on being here a long time…like forever. PS: Panorama will not reopen for us until COVID is a memory, and then we need more than 20 people there also.
