In the age of coronavirus, entertaining and social distancing outdoors around a fire pit is the perfect solution. Socializing outdoors is safer and healthier too: one’s chances of catching the virus is twenty times lower outdoors than indoors and studies show that time spent al fresco is both physically and mentally restorative.
