Large tents and tables with umbrellas in parking lots and seating on the sidewalks under the eaves of buildings are showing up here and there in the city as restaurants are working to bring in revenues during an indoor seating ban.

Neil Roe, one of the owners of Peppers Grill & Bar, said dining spots have been added in the outdoor courtyard area of the Sunwest Centre building on North Main Street.
