When we say, “going out to eat,” what we really mean is dining in — indoors, where we are sheltered and snug with ambient lighting and temperature controls, free from humidity, insects, rain, wind, snow and bitter cold, depending on the season. The American dining experience had long been a study in comfort and entertainment more than mere nourishment and socialization.

It’s part of a larger trend; as a society we’ve become indoor cats. A 2019 study by the Outdoor Foundation found that nearly half of all Americans do not participate in any outdoor recreation, while only 17.9 percent even

Syracuse, N. Y. — Terry Riley has a sense of what will happen Wednesday when he opens his North Side bar/restaurant for the first time in 13 months.

“It’s going to be horrible,” he said. “There will be crying, and hugging. People will say ‘We’ve missed you.’ More crying. More hugging. It will just be horrible. I don’t think I can stand it.”

If you’ve ever met Terry Riley, you know that’s his way of saying: “All our friends are going to be back. It’s gonna be great!”

Does this sound familiar? You’ve had it with cooking every day, so you’ve been relying on takeout while waiting for restaurants to open up so you can finally go out to eat again.

But there’s something you should know.

The study of more than 35,000 adults aged 20 years or older—conducted before the pandemic began—found that people who ate two or more meals prepared away from home on

Fewer people want to eat their meals at Walmart .

For years Walmart Inc. and large restaurant chains like McDonald’s Corp. enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship. The retailer delivered a steady stream of diners, and the eateries provided rental profits and a reason for shoppers to stick around stores.

Those bonds have frayed as more shopping goes online and fast-food restaurants depend more on drive-through windows for sales, a feature Walmart locations don’t have. The pandemic has made indoor dining unappealing—or prohibited—for many shoppers, accelerating the split.

McDonald’s is closing hundreds of restaurants located in the largest U.S. retailer’s stores,

For Portland-area restaurants, the last few months have felt like the light at the end of a very long tunnel. In February, plummeting COVID-19 cases prompted Gov. Kate Brown to reopen dining rooms for the first time in three months. By March, Portland restaurants were allowed to expand indoor capacity further. And April has brought a sunny glimpse of the summer ahead — patio season is almost here.

Some of those gains will be reversed on Friday, when two of Oregon’s three largest counties — Multnomah and Clackamas — will return to the high-risk category, once again limiting restaurants to
