Love the Kraken

We are all so lucky to share a corner bar where we can escape the fickle twists and turns of fate. The Kraken is the latest and greatest in forty seven roadhouse years on White Cross, at the corner of Dodson's Crossroads and N.C. Hwy 54.

We treasure the character and all of the characters collaborating on and off stage, all of us reviving, redefining, and writing brand new history with great stories, laughter and music.

All of us here at The Kraken strive to support the community and now we humbly ask for your assistance so we can continue our mission when the Covid-19 public gathering ban is lifted.

All donations will be split evenly between the staff that makes it all happen - James, Mark, Bobbie, Meredith, Kirk and Jody. Your assistance will help keep all of us at The Kraken 
afloat through the month or two of rough seas ahead. Jody and Kirk hope to join collaborations bringing special streaming performances in the downtime and will apply their portions back into the roadhouse.

Thank you so much for being a great part of such a special institution. We appreciate all of you and look forward to seeing you  soon when the seas calm..
