There are many ways of social distancing but one bar in Ocean City, Maryland is trying inter tubes to keep customers at least six feet apart while visiting.
The giant inflatable inner tubes are on wheels so people can safely return to bars and properly distance themselves.
They’re called Bumper Tables, and Fish Tales owner Donna Harman told TMZ that she’s already bought 10 of them, which she plans to roll out once she’s allowed to. She says she’ll probably let people use these in the parking lot and estimates she can safely fit 40 to 50 of them at a time in that space.
Patrons come in with these massive apparatuses around them … and they’d be able to mingle without the staff having to hover and enforce social distancing, ’cause these tubes are 6 feet wide.
The new Bumper Tables are a new invention manufactured by a company called Revolution Event, which is run by Erin Cermak. Cermak says she and her partners came up with the idea and that they are all custom-made and in direct response to the pandemic. Could this idea be adapted for concert attendees?
