Help Save Baltimore Restaurants & Bars!

Baltimore City restaurants are dying a slow, inevitable death due to the mayor's indoor & outdoor dining ban. These establishments were not able to open their doors during Christmas, New Year's, the Ravens playoff run - and many more events. Over 20,000 employees have lost their source of income as a result of the ban, and experts predict that anywhere from 40-70% of establishments will never be able to reopen.

We have identified five bars & restaurants which are in need of immediate financial relief. Inspired by Dave Portnoy & The Barstool Fund, we are launching a local fundraiser to get money into these small businesses as soon as possible, as they struggle to keep the lights on.  Every penny collected will go to Sliders Bar & Grille, The Chasseur, G & A Restaurant, The Angle Inn, and Shotti's Point Charm City. Each one of these owners has put in years of blood, sweat, and tears - day after day - only for their livelihoods to be unjustly threatened.

The most beautiful part of this town is its ability to rise up and come together when facing adversity. Let's do the right thing, and ensure we are able to enjoy a delicious meal and cold beer together when things return to normal.

TJ Smith will be withdrawing the funds and distributing the to the bars & restaurants in the quickest manner possible, helping them get their bills paid as quickly as possible!
