Eater Talks | What Happens to Outdoor Dining in Winter?

On Thursday, October 29, Eater editors will discuss the challenges ahead for restaurants and bars as wintertime dining approaches

Eater Talks: What Happens to Outdoor Dining in Winter?

October 29 — 1:30 p.m. ET / 12:30 p.m. CT

When it comes to living with the coronavirus, one piece of advice is unequivocally clear: Outside is best. What’s far less clear is how restaurants and bars, currently relying heavily on the rare bright spot that is outdoor dining, will make that work as temperatures dip.

On Thursday, October 29, at 1:30 p.m. ET, Eater daily editor Madeleine Davies will moderate a panel featuring editors Monica Burton, Brenna Houck, and Ashok Selvam to reflect on what the upcoming season looks like for restaurants — as they combat not only bad weather but also the lack of holiday parties, big catering orders, and other business boons that the winter typically brings — and what it means for diners.

The conversation and Q+A will take place over Zoom. Register below to secure a spot, receive a Zoom link prior to the event, and add the event to your calendar.
