@Anon re: shanty

They are all shanties, no matter what town.

I'm not that confident yet about fully re-opening, but since restaurants will have higher capacity, these shanties should be removed from the streets. It's not being said at all by our electeds and even local news, but these shanties and the bike lanes are driving people nuts.

Wait till a car plows into one full of diners or jerks start shooting at each other in the middle of the street and one bullet hits a shack.

Stop with the micro aggressions - the word shanty is Irish for house or home. It is not an English word but was anglicized by the Anglo Irish plantation owners in Ireland. Anything nearly Celtic was looked down upon by the overlords.
Every thing the British did was to psychologically subjugate the Irish.

The word brogue doesn’t translate from Irish as an accent - it means shoe.The British claimed the Irish spoke with a shoe on their tongues - or a brogue. Another put down intended to keep down the Irish.
The correct name for a free standing out door dinning room is shed.
Unless of course it’s late November and all of December then you may call it a manger.
