Re: Mall Food Courts and Coronavirus

Food Courts at most malls in the San Francisco Bay Area are all very inconsistent on whether they are open or not.

Re: Capacity Limits... in the winter

The problem is that the aluminum can companies are already pushed to the limit and cannot seem to produce eno...
