Concerns over the spread of the novel coronavirus have resulted in some creative takes on organizing scheduled gatherings (such as one university letting their students attend a graduation ceremony via robot avatars). For the most part, however, people are trying to do their part and stay home.

That means for Japanese Twitter user and husband MianFP (@miansanFP), bar hopping is a no go. Fortunately, he has a very understanding and clever wife. He recently shared the following Tweet and accompanying charming picture.

"Since it's the end of the week, I asked my wife if it was OK to go out for a drink. She told me I wasn't allowed to because of the coronavirus situation. I quietly accepted it and when I got home, she had left a menu out for me. As expected she's just too cute..."

The menu is decorated with a cute mascot advertising the household izakaya (a Japanese style pub) by the name of "Free Drunk", which has an opening time of when MianFP gets home and a last order of roughly 10:00 pm. The menu offers beer, a variety of sours, and quite a bit of Japanese pub fare such as edamame, omelettes, wieners, french fries, and salad.

Right now one of the most important basic steps people can do as a countermeasure to the pandemic is to stay home and not congregate in bars, but it looks like MianFP can avoid that thanks to his lovely bartender wife!
