Reliable Tavern Staff Loves You

The COVID Virus Shutdown has, as with so many others in the restaurant industry, put the Reliable Tavern bar team out of work.  Reliable has experienced tremendous goodwill and outreach from our wonderful patrons in the past two weeks through gift certificate purchases and to go orders, and that has provided a bridge for the business to get through this crisis.  The generosity has meant that Reliable will be open and ready for all of our staff to return to work when the crisis is over.  But now, with your help, we hope to directly and immediately support the people who really keep Reliable running and the drinks flowing: OUR STAFF. Many of our fantastic patrons have asked how they can help, so we are starting this campaign to provide a method to extend your tremendous goodwill to them.
We know so many other restaurants and staffs are in need right now and there's only so much you can do. If you can only give once this week or this month, please consider our staff next time you can give. We will be forever grateful for whatever you can do.

The funds will go directly to staff in an effort to keep them safe at home, fed, and healthy. Your support is going to make an immediate difference for them. The fund will go through me, Ben Long, the general manager at Reliable.
