Downtown San Antonio’s Hard Rock Cafe is holding a weekend event to honor the launch of new Amazon Original Series The Pack with prizes, patio seating and — presumably? — social distancing.
If social distancing is part of the plan — and we're guessing management is smart enough to know it should be — one wouldn't know it solely based on the choice of words used to promote the shindig.
"Take advantage of all the gifts, surprises & delights offered during this #PackedWeekend," the Facebook event page reads.
The series — which pits twelve teams of canines and their humans against each other in a cross-continental challenge for a chance to win $500,000 — sounds like TV viewing dog lovers can get behind.
But as COVID-19 cases in Texas spike, recently surpassing one million cases, one would think someone would be a little more selective when choosing verbiage for the show's nationwide promotional event.
We’re looking at you, Amazon.
If a #PackedWeekend in the middle of a pandemic is your jam, feel free to reserve a spot on Hard Rock Cafe’s patio for the event, which begins Friday at noon.
Note: Following the publication of this post, Hard Rock contacted the Current and said that the downtown restaurant will be following safety protocols including temperature checks of all guests with a thermal scanner upon arrival. Face coverings will also be required for staff at all times and guests who are not seated at a table.
