Oh look: Mayor of Philadelphia caught dining inside a restaurant while dining inside restaurants is prohibited in Philadelphia
· Aug 31, 2020 · NottheBee.com

Restaurants are among the businesses hardest-hit by coronavirus lockdowns, so imagine the relish (pun) with which restaurateur Marc Vetri shared this photo on Instagram:

I'm gonna quote his caption here just for effect because it's delicious (pun):

Hi @phillymayor !!! Glad you're enjoying indoor dining with no social distancing or mask wearing in Maryland tonight while restaurants here in Philly close, suffer and fight for every nickel just to survive. I guess all your press briefings and your narrative of unsafe indoor dining don't apply to you. Thank you for clearing it all up for us tonight. 🙏

Yeah, the mayor of Philly, Jim Kenney, decided to go out for a meal inside a restaurant even though going out for a meal inside a restaurant is currently against the law for the the pleb class in his city.

A spokesperson offered a defense on his behalf:

"The mayor went to Maryland earlier to patronize a restaurant owned by a friend of his ... For what it's worth, he also went to Rouge to enjoy outdoor dining in Philly on the way home."
