Cole's Bar Employee Relief Fund

This is a rough one kids. We here at Cole's bar have decided to close for at least two weeks as a result of it being impossible to tell how many people in the community are at risk of contacting COVID 19. We think it's more responsible to be ahead of the curve on this.

This is a huge blow to the staff who are not just your best friends in the Bar tending//Security biz, but also performers, comedians, artists, musicians, and dj's. Pretty much we got very good at jobs that require large groups of people to gather together, shake hands, commune and do shots out of each other's belly buttons. These ancient rites of the "before time" have melted into the ether for the foreseeable future.

All the money will go to Cole's bar employees for frivolous millennial trinkets like food, rent, utilities, and so much more.

While the staff has a little sick pay, many of us make a scrappy gig to gig living. We love this community so much. And we can't wait to see your bunker tans once we get through this mess. So if we've ever tossed you a free one, gave you laugh, or made sure you had a good night we'd appreciate anything ya got for us. Stay rad comrades.
