Edging Toward Relief (The Edge Bar relief fund)

***UPDATE: Our amazing owners of the The Edge will match up to $5k made by March 31st!***

Due to SF Department of Public Health’s latest attempts to contain the spread of COVID-19 (Corona Virus), as many of you know, The Edge Bar in SF's Castro district will be closed until May 1st.

This has put all of us that depend on your patronage (and tips) at risk of losing our very living here in San Francisco. When all of this is over, we would love to continue being there for you; through your hard times, your happy times, and everything else in between, like we always have. And now that we are at our hard times, we want to thank all of you who have reached out and asked how you can be there for us.

If you have ever sang along with us during our gleeful Musical Nights, hosted or helped at any of our charitable beerbusts, laughed at our (proudly) ridiculous Monster [drag] Show, cruised at any CODE gear nights, or just sat back and enjoyed the tunes of our Throwback Tuesday, you can help us by making sure the staff can come back and continue being there for you and providing these amazingly fun events.

Would you have gone out a couple of times throughout these next 7 weeks and spent on a couple of drinks anyway? Instead, please consider donating that amount directly to your favorite bartender, barback or VJ.

Any and all donations will go directly to the staff of the bar and assure we can afford the forced seven weeks of unemployment. So come virtually "Edge" with us if you will. And don't forget to put in the tip ;-)
