Lack of tourists force restaurants to adjust


TRINIDAD, Ca. (KIEM)-North Coast restaurants rely on tourists to drive their business, now they are being forced to adjust.

Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial kick off to the summer season. With the lack of outside visitors, restaurants are finding new ways to keep their businesses afloat.

The Seascape Restaurant in Trinidad is no different, they depend on customers who come for the food and the view that has changed.

Tables and chairs on their patio for guests is no longer allowed, even if they are six-feet-apart. Something restaurant workers hope changes soon.

Restaurant supervisor Erica Ervin says the changes they’ve implemented should sustain them for a bit longer.

For now they are preparing meals for Tribal members, which seems to be helping them stay afloat.
