Littleton restaurants and their patrons took to the streets June 12 for the first night of the “Weekends on Main” program.
Patrons sat outdoors to enjoy al fresco style dining, while chatting over meals and drinks. They also enjoyed live music provided by several restaurants, creating a laid-back atmosphere.
“Weekends on Main” started as the city’s way of helping restaurants that have lost business due to COVID-19. The program will run every weekend through June, starting at 3 p.m. on Fridays and ending at 9 p.m. Sundays.
More information about it can be found on the city’s website, littletongov.org.
The program goes beyond just business. For Carole Alvarez, owner of In-Tea, “It’s more of a matter of reconnecting as a community, and having the ability to do so safely.”
With spread-out tables and other safety precautions such as masks, the outdoor dining offered on Main Street gave diners the chance to socialize with friends and community in a safe environment.
For many patrons, the motivation to come out tonight was similar.
“We’ve found recently that community is more important to us than ever,” said Amy Reichardt, while dining at Jake’s Brew Bar. “Having an opportunity to rejoin the community we’ve been missing is amazing and deeply wanted.”
