I wanted to provide an up date as to what is happening here at the Red Blazer as we approach the holidays with an Emphasis on Thanksgiving. From the beginning of this Covid Crisis The Red Blazer has tried to take a leading position on protecting our Employees and in turn doing everything we can to protect our customers making everyone feel safe and comfortable dining in our facility. While we have been given guidance that would allow for us to seat more people internally we have decided not to; we are maintaining the 50% capacity which gives us a greater deal of control and enables us to make sure we are doing everything to make patrons feel good about being in our facility. We figure we are better off adjusting to a new level of business for the time being to ensure our processes and procedures can be carried out with a higher level of success.
We do enforce and ask all our patrons to wear a mask when entering the building and being sat at your table; while we understand there is plenty of controversy surrounding masks we figure why not play the safety. We have implemented cleaning strategies that go beyond the recommendations to ensure we do our part in keeping everyone safe. We have sanitizer available throughout the facility and ask our customers to take all the extra precautions and do their part to assist in our efforts. In the end we want our customers to feel good about dining with us knowing we are doing all the right things and the fact we take this all very seriously. It’s also worth mentioning that our facility is under negative air pressure providing ideal conditions for all our interior spaces under the current circumstances; In addition our facility has always operated with multiple air ex-changers consistently bringing in fresh air from the outside.
On to Thanksgiving; We have made the decision to cancel our Thanksgiving Day Buffet which we have reliably put on every year for the last 20 years. Our decision is two fold; Our holiday buffets are wildly popular we serve as many as a thousand people in a very short period of time; under these conditions there is no way to social distance and in fact very little can be done with this type of format to make it safe. Most of you know the shock this mess has caused to everyone in our business and in many other businesses creating a lot of stress in many different areas. Based on all these factors we have decided to spend the holiday with our families a well deserved break after a 20 year run serving our Thanksgiving Holiday Buffet.
In the next several days we will be posting a Thanksgiving menu which has been designed in a take and bake format – On a first come first serve basis we will be offering a delicious selection of items including the Turkey that can be pre-ordered and picked up on Wednesday the 25th. All items in our offering will be set up in a fashion that allows you to follow a set of basic instruction to cook or heat up the various menu options to help take some of the pressure off those who choose to stay and cook at home. In addition, we will also have a special selection of cakes and dessert to compliment our normal dessert offerings. We will take orders up until Sunday Nov. 22nd or at such time our capacity is maxed out.
We hope this huge change from our norms does not create any hardships; we are truly grateful and humbled by the amazing support of all our customers/friends that have made our venue part of their holiday traditions and have made the Red Blazer the most popular choice in the city. From our entire staff we wish you all a healthy and Happy Holiday season with all the very best the season has to offer. One love from the entire Red Blazer staff.
