Honestly I’d use it as an opportunity to correct the likely too-low salary they were paying when they laid you off 🙈

You weren't fired for cause. I know several people who have been rehired at their previous agency after a Covid layoff. Kinesso, for example. If you really enjoyed working there, why not go back?

Plenty of fish in the sea. I’d move on, if you left on good terms they’ll reach back out eventually. They always do.

I got let go. It says no one fought for you. They won’t fight for you if you go back either. Freelance, yes. (For a high rate) Staff, no!!

Only weird if it was you being laid off due to the beer and not the pandy.
