“Houston! We have an Austin!”

Our good friend Austin was hit by a car Sunday night walking home from down town. He’s OK! Thankfully! After doing a triple axle back flip off the hood of the car and landing 35 feet away, he suffers from a broken leg, arm and a couple of vertebrae bones. He is scheduled for surgery on his knee tomorrow. He will undergo months of recovery and physical therapy before he’s able to return to being one of your favorite bartenders at the Roadside Attraction. Meanwhile, any contribution will help make his life easier, so he can maintain paying his bills and keep his apartment while his bones heal. He’s expecting a full recovery, but it’s going to take time. I’m the meantime, I hope to relieve him of the financial stress that comes with being unable to work for so long. Every little bit adds up, so thank you all for contributing and sharing this post. Sending Austin lots of love and hopes for a speedy recovery!
