If you are a motorcycle enthusiast then you know Bike Week 2020 is still alive. Even though Bike Week and Bike Week Delmarva suspended the entertainment and vendors, bikers are still planing to come to Ocean City in large numbers.
There's a catch though and everyone needs to be aware of what to expect. There are NO SPECIAL EVENT LICENSES being disbursed to any bar/restaurant. This means, no open container licenses in which you could drink anywhere on the premises/parking lots.
Traditionally Trader Lee's and Caribbean Joe's were able to use such a license and quite frankly it makes absolutely no sense at all. Why would the County want to cram people INSIDE a building when this license would allow far better social distancing.
Fortunately for Caribbean Joe's we have three bars, two of them outdoors. When you look at other establishments they'll be confined to indoor use, MINUS 50% of their normal capacity.
So when the OC Bars/Restaurants follow the rules and IF the bikers come to town in the volume I believe they will, there's going to be long lines and frustrated patrons.
