Help Lazy Bird Staff During Bar Closure

Along with all other restaurants and bars in the City of Chicago and beyond, Lazy Bird has closed its doors until at least March 30th, and possibly longer. Lazy Bird staff is a small group of bartenders, barbacks and servers for whom this is our sole income. We are sad to close but understand the precautions are important for our imminent health as a community, country, and nation; however the furlough will come without pay. There are options for unemployment through the state of IL, though the scale of those affected by this temporary lay off is so large that the state already cannot keep up with our claims. There is no guarantee that our financial needs will be honored.  If you are considering donating, any little bit helps! If you have been a patron or friend to walk into the doors of L.B. during this first year of our opening, thank you for your support! We have had many laughs and awesome guests all around. We hope to be back soon to continue the fun.
