Help Save The Hard Swallow Saloon

Donation protected
In January 2017 The Hard Swallow was forced to close it doors due a reneg in the purchase Agreement made with the previous owners of Spanky and Darla's (Cheap Shots inc.) you can read the details of the on going legal battle here at
Since closing Big Lee and Sasha have overcome major hurdles in the fight to reopen, while they regained access to the bar, evicted the previous owners,  secured a new lease of 10 years, and were approved by the community board for their license, they have exhausted their original investment and need to raise a minimum of $50k to reopen in June. 
The support from friends, family, and the community has been generous and humbling. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and we need your help to acheive it. No donation is to small. Thank you all for spreading the word, supporting the cause and your generosity. Please share and help reach the goal.
