It’s very hot and many of us don’t have AC. Meeples is air conditioned and we have tables where you can sit to be inside and be cool. There is no cafe service, we don’t open until next week, but we have free water and some cold drinks.

No games, please. Social distancing requirements are waived and mask usage while sitting down is up to you. Masks are required when entering and walking around, though, so be prepared.
