    This is great news, St. Georges needs more outdoor seating. Also to note many of St. Georges shops are closed on Sunday. Can you please remain open on both Saturday and Sunday as many Bermudians love to go to St. Georges on the weekend. Perhaps you could close on Monday instead?

    Why a temporary measure? Why not permanent?

      Perhaps something to do with the mayor being the owner of a gas station?
