"For the safety of all staff and guests," they say they will be observing social distancing protocols and implementing enhanced sanitizing procedures. "We strongly urge guests to wear masks and adhere to public health safety protocols."

Capacity will be limited to 20 guests at a time, and they suggest to call ahead to check availability.
