Nobody seems to be talking about this feature of the convention center (it is in Hall K if you want to see it yourself). My group is debating whether this is a designated eating area, or something else?
It's meant to be a place to eat for extended period without a mask on between bites. I believe setting up games there will be discouraged.
I'm curious why would you set up a mask free zone INSIDE the exhibit hall?
I also noticed there was mention of “mask break tables” OUTSIDE as well.
To me this implies that masks are expected outside too, or at least expected “if crowded” (whatever their official definition of that may be). Does this mean that the block party/beer garden/food truck area is indeed a badge-required area? Never did find out the answer to this from an actual Gencon source.
it was always my impression that the food truck area and walkthrough of that part of Georgia st was public, so I am wondering why they are setting up “mask break” areas if masks are optional in public spaces.
Georgia Street is open to everyone, as of right now there are no outdoor mask mandates here in Indy
With restaurants, they would just say the space in front of the restaurant is for eating, no masks. With food trucks.. no so easy.
I asked whether the beer garden needed a badge for entry several months ago and people appeared to be split 50/50 whether they thought yes or no
There is also a sold out maskless Colts game this weekend
There is no Mask requirement for Georgia Street
No way that could enforce a mask mandate on Georgia Street
Editors Note: I started typing this 50 minutes ago, I just saw Admins note
actually thought about going, but I’ll be partied out by then. I attended a baseball game last month with attendance of 32k+, mask optional. No drama, felt fine, everyone had a good time.
Good Morning CENSORED,
Why yes I have been to Gen Con before, as a matter of fact this will be my 29th straight in a row GC. Thanks for asking
I must admit I have never been dumb enough or desperate enough to buy any of the "crap" that they sell from inside the ICC. I guess people who do partake of said nutrients really are not too concerned about their health in the first place :)
It just seems odd that if you are trying to protect your revenue stream by asking them to be vaccinated, and requiring them to wear a mask indoors that you would have an opening, by design, aka chink in the chain mail.
