Many local businesses have felt the harsh effects of the pandemic, especially restaurants.  The owners of these restaurants have been able to adapt, thanks to outdoor dining and delivery services, but the situation may become more difficult when winter comes along.  In this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi," WEMU's Lisa Barry and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg speak to Andrea "Cuppy" White, owner of Cuppy's Best Soulful Cafe in Ypsilanti, about how she, like several other local restaurateurs, plans to maintain her business through the rest of this trying year.
