“Over the past several weeks, if you had a craving for food from your favorite eatery, the best you could do is drive through, delivery, or curbside pickup.

It’s strange to see some of downtown Joplin’s most popular restaurants without any customers inside.

But that will all change on Monday when restaurants like Club 609 will have to space tables six feet apart and have no more than six customers at a table.

Even with those perimeters, Steve Williams says he’ll take what he can get.

Steve Williams, Manager, Club 609, said, “But it’s just gonna help us obviously get people in the restaurant seating, we’re gonna have to do our due diligence and make sure that we’re, tables are set up properly and make sure, you know, that nobody’s there sick or coming into the building sick, we’ve got a lot of work to do but it’s a great start.”
