First of all Happy New Year and, welcome to 2021 after what was a horrible 2020 for most of us.

As we enter the New Year it seems almost daily we are breaking new deadly records during the current Covid 19 pandemic.

At the same time as the pandemic numbers are rising also is the opposition to the current lock down situation. Several Costa Mesa restaurants and, bars have been ignoring the restrictions.

Because of the ongoing Covid pandemic things will be the same this year as last with social distancing, face masks and lots of restrictions; Hopefully by late summer or early fall things can return to somewhat normancy.

As we enter 2021 Costa Mesa will still be a vibrant fun place to live as we wish for a better year I wish you all a safe Happy New Year.
