In Kentucky, Skiadas Restaurants Use Good Time Tent During COVID-19

December 12, 2020

While restaurants have been limited by the COVID-19 pandemic to outdoor seating, take-out and delivery to keep going – and limited indoor dining – Ben Skiadas and his family went to a heated, outdoor pavilion they call The Good Time Tent. 

It's in Owensboro, Kentucky and customers there can order from the family's restaurants The Famous Bistro and Lure Seafood and Grille, watch TV and stay a safe social distance but while feeling like being in a real sit-down eatery once again. 

“This whole pandemic has created some very unique challenges,” Skiadas told the Courier and Press. “I feel so far we’ve handled them pretty well, but this new set of circumstances going into winter is going to be extra difficult.” 

He said food and beverage places are being unfairly restricted because private events can host up to 25 people but his restaurants can't. 

“Our industry seems to be taking the brunt despite huge crowds in retail,” he said. “Stores aren’t keeping track of how many people go in like they were before; there were no black Friday regulations and I find that a little absurd.” 


JERUSALEM — Albert Bourla, chairman and chief executive of global pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Inc, was awarded on Wednesday the prestigious Genesis Prize for his efforts in leading the development of a COVID-19 vaccine.
