Breakwall BBQ in Ohio says that they have hundreds of Pennsylvania residents crossing the border to Ohio, where restaurants are allowed to open. The restaurant owners say they’ve broken sales records, and a big chunk of it is Pennsylvanians.

“It’s tongue-in-cheek,” owner Mike Morgan said. “We’ve broken all kinds of sales records, and we know that big chunk of it is that Pennsylvania is shut down.”

I know how much the hospitality workers in Florida suffered, I can’t imagine being in PA, where things are still shut down. Especially knowing that people are crossing the border into Ohio to go out to eat.
