Help Bottom Lounge staff

Starting tonight (Monday, March 16), Bottom Lounge will be closed as part of the Illinois mandate on bars and restaurants. The hiatus is going to have an immediate impact on everyone, so I've launched an online tip fund to try and help out. 

100% of the money you donate will go directly to all the bartenders, servers, cooks, dishwashers, security and production staff that are currently out of work. If you've ever enjoyed a meal, drink or show at Bottom Lounge, please consider making a contribution to help everyone weather this storm. Anything you can donate will be greatly appreciated. 

Stay healthy and see you all soon.
