Friday, May 22nd was the day the Governor of Texas declared that bars in the state could re-open after the mandated COVID-19 shutdown up to 25% capacity. We at The Cottonmouth Club thought long and hard about whether or not to do that, and ultimately decided we would, though the safety protocols we instituted were above what was recommended.
In this podcast, edited by our friend Blair Ault of Whiskey Women Podcast, you’ll hear the audio from our live stream Virtual Bar, which we hosted for the first time in an actual bar that was actually open. Her editing captured all of the questions, all of the anxiety, all of the euphoria, and all of the interactions between the staff themselves and the guests, both virtual and real, that they hosted.
Extra special thanks to Blair Ault for her guest edit, and to all of the people who came and followed the rules we laid out for them. To all of you who will have to make this choice in the future, we wish you the best and hope that you, too, choose to do the best you can.
