POLL: Is It Irresponsible for Bars and Restaurants to Stay Open During Hurricane Sandy?
Today, many Philadelphia bars and restaurants are announcing (some pretty much bragging) on Twitter about being open during Hurricane Sandy even though Mayor Michael Nutter has declared a state of emergency and told people to stay home. Some on Twitter aren’t very happy about this. @JayPepito tweets: “Unbelievable that Stephen Starr is having restaurants open today in Philadelphia. What an irresponsible jackass.”
On one hand, people love to have a neighborhood gathering place during major storms. But on the other hand, many employees have to travel from the outskirts of the city to get to work. Are these restaurants making the right decisions?
