OK, so as per our discussion tonight, I did find a place that can do a Covid-compliant outdoor breakfast. (That being said, given the tonight's news from Harrisburg it may be a moot point!)
I've just had a discussion with the owner of a local eatery, The Sweet Briar Cafe in Ambler. She and her husband have the ability to host our group for Sunday breakfasts. There's a large parking lot right across the street, and on-street parking as well (just
off the main drag), so we'd be able to be near our cars, have breakfast in the outdoors (appropriately socially distanced) and enjoy a socially responsible time together.
She's got a 6 tables with 4 chairs each outside in the grassy area next to her restaurant, and we each can of course bring our own tables and chairs to supplement if needed. The area is pretty large, so social distancing shouldn't be too much of a problem.
Prices are reasonable, I've eaten there before and the food's always been very good. (They don't have a liquor license, but 9:00 am on a Sunday is a bit early for me anyway!)
Have a look at their menu here:

Given we need to take the weather into account for an outdoor meal, I think we should plan on doing it
this coming Sunday morning (6/14)
at 9:00 am, since we can reasonably predict the weather on that date. It's supposed to be sunny and about 66 degrees at that time.
How does that sound to everyone? Would you attend? If so, how many of you? Please replay so I have some idea if this will work. (thanks!)
