Back in the days, I was hanging out with a large group of friends and eating together with them at a restaurant. While this may seem like a distant memory simply unfathomable at the time of writing this review, I can assure you that time actually once existed. If you are reading this articles many years since it has been published and recall the great pandemic of 2020, then I would like to say being able to see friends is actually something that we should not take for granted.
