The provincial COVID-19 reopening, not to mention some great weather, were fortuitous for Somerset Street West businesses this weekend.

Somerset will be closed to vehicular traffic between Bank and O’Connor streets from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays and from 12 noon to 11 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays again this year, creating a lively patio zone.

“The businesses along Somerset between Bank and O’Connor applied for the closures again this year and were approved,” Coun. Catherine McKenney confirmed in an email on Saturday.

“I strongly supported the request.”

Restaurant Union Local 613 was pumped about the news.

“Annnnnnd WE’RE BACK. It all kicks off tonight at 5pm right through until later than anyone has worked in 2021,” it posted on its Facebook page.
