Bars, Restaurants Reopen In Part Of Michigan

From the Associated Press — Beer flowed in the wee hours Friday and pancakes were back on the griddle as bars and restaurants reopened in northern Michigan in time for the Memorial Day weekend after a two-month shutdown because of coronavirus restrictions. “It’s crazy. Why would you miss it?” Jon Mangrum told WPBN-TV as he waited to get into a bar in Traverse City. “This is like a historical moment almost when everyone first goes back out when things are allowed to be open.” Governor Gretchen Whitmer lifted some restrictions at 12:01 a.m. for the Upper Peninsula and the northern Lower Peninsula, although only a certain number of customers are allowed inside to drink or dine.
