Governor Gregg Abbott has been gaslit and bullied by the media, and now he’s locked-down his state again.
Last Friday Abbott issued an executive order closing all bars due to a surge in COVID-19 cases.
This ended all in-person local concerts.
Except for one.
Vanilla Ice at Emerald Point Bar & Grill on Friday.
He outsmarted them all, and now he’s all set to perform a big sold-out gig in Austin, Texas.
Here’s how he did it:
The massive, multi-level marina structure on Lake Travis is categorized as a restaurant because at least 51% of its sales are food and, while Abbott’s order shut down bars, it only reduced restaurant capacity to 50%. A couple other local venues, Stubb’s and the Far Out Lounge, also remain open because of their restaurant designation. According to an interview with Emerald Point general manager Matt Norcia in May, the business maintains a load card for 4,000 people but can scale up to 5,000 when they open the beach area.
The Independence Day Throwback Beach Party promoter, Mike Wade, told Chronicle reporter Rachel Rascoe via text that the show’s capacity will be 2,500. Tickets, selling on Eventbrite, range $25-$300.
Vanilla Ice, aka Dallas native Rob Van Winkle, leans heavily on celebration of Nineties throwback culture in his promotion. An Instagram post from earlier this week showed footage from a packed concert, along with the caption: “I can’t wait to get back to this. The Nineties were the best. We didn’t have coronavirus, or cell phones, or computers.” He goes on to call the era, “The last of the great decades.”
What the media and Dems won’t tell you is that the death rate is plummeting. The virus is weak and it still has. a 99.9% survival rate and over 80% of the people who catch it don’t even get a symptom.
But after months and months of panic peddling, just the word “COVID” now makes people think of a “death sentence.”
I had COVID-19…a bad case, actually, but I made it, and if you’re healthy, with no pre-existing conditions you will likely be perfectly fine even if you get a bad case as I did.
If you’re vulnerable you should definitely take precautions.
