Under the domes

Who says colder weather means you have to dine inside?

Sankai's geodesic domes: "The demand for eating outside is still there," says restaurateur Shubert Ho.

If you strolled by SanKai recently, you've seen what appears to be a trio of see-through igloos outside its Fourth Avenue North location.

Nope. They are geodesic domes constructed from high-strength polycarbonate material 200 times stronger than glass and capable of sustaining 70 mph winds.

That's a mouthful. So go ahead and call them domes. Or igloos. Or dome pods. They are booming in popularity worldwide after the worst of the pandemic subsided (we think) and are especially prevalent in colder climates.

Like Edmonds in late November. (Looked outside lately?)

Consider them a socially distant option to dining in.

The domes are the latest creation from Shubert Ho of Feedme Hospitality.

"The pandemic created a culture of people wanting to eat outside and in the elements a little more," he said.
