Octapas Cafe Survival Fund #SmallBusinessRelief

AKA "Long Live the Dijon Brussels" ;)

The Octapas crew is a small, tight knit band of locals, imports, and family and, like so many, we have been hit hard by the necessary restaurant/bar closure throughout the state.  Many of you have asked how you can be of support, so we are humbly asking for your financial help to see us through to the other side.

In addition to the difficulty of sending all of our staff home we were also devastated to see our event space close during this time. We've had the pleasure of hosting all manner of musicians, comedians, and other performers over the past (almost) two years, and have become a safe and celebratory space for minors and our LGBTQ+ community.  It has been a great gift to host so much talent on our stage and for you to be a part of all those performances. 

Our two year anniversary will come and go during this closure, and we look forward to celebrating that milestone with you as soon as we are able! It's our hope that when we do open our doors again that we can bring back as many of our staff as possible, put our amazing sound engineers back to work, and begin rescheduling cancelled events. Any help you are able to give at this time would be put towards those efforts.

We are endlessly grateful to everyone who has shown support by placing pick-up orders, making donations through our website and purchasing gift certificates. It has been amazing to be a part of the Olympia dining and music scene over these past two years and your support means everything! We are in this together! 

- Co-Owners, Richard Mullins and Jamie Brayshaw
