We ARE your community!

Help us make our new look happen! Our goal is $150,000

We need you now.

RIS Goals:  

-NEW LOOK – NEW FOOD!…while keeping our fan favorites, of course!
-A face-lift in updated colors, furniture, & lighting for sophistication and mood
-A communal table that creates an inviting gathering place
-Re-energize with a warm, vibrant & casual lounge outside

All donations of money will be, in fact, gifts to RIS with no expectation of return. 100% of all monies collected through GoFundMe will go towards the hard and soft costs of the renovation of RIS which includes but is not limited to: furniature, lighting, painting, and contractor services. RIS will accept and manage the funds and allocate to the appropriate renovation avenues.


Updates will be constant.  You will hear from us a lot! We will not close until we have reached our goal and only then will we open the cans of paint
so donate NOW and let the renovation begin!!!
