Welcome to the latest installment of Thirsty Thursday with The BOB!
With social distancing being part of the “new normal”, it’s easy for businesses and their employees to fall victim to SDDD (Social Distanced Disconnection Disorder.) If you’ve never heard of SDDD, that’s ok because I just made it up. Basically, it’s how I try to explain how we behave with one another now that Social Distancing is a current fixture of our lives. A good example of SDDD is how I feel when I meet someone new and I don’t know whether or not to shake that person’s hand, give them a fist or elbow bump, high five, or just nod and smile. The unfair thing about SDDD, is that it might make us look or feel as if we’re being rude or standoffish, when in reality, we’re just trying to figure it out like everyone else.
SDDD is brutal, and that must be double for those who work or navigate in the service industry. Keeping all of that in mind, it’s refreshing to walk into a Brewery or Tap House that keeps SDDD in check. I’ve been lucky enough to have great experiences lately, like last week’s Thirsty Thursday at Victor 23 Craft Brewery.
We had another great experience at this week’s Highlight, Trusty Brewing Company, located in downtown Vancouver.
