Shady Grove Employee Relief Fund

After 28 years of great food, amazing music, and memories that will last a lifetime our time on Barton Springs Road has come to an end.  This closure has had a profound effect on all of us but none more than the amazing employees at Shady Grove.  Please know that we are doing everything we can to care for these wonderful people as we all mourn the loss of one of our favorite places in Austin.  That said there is no way to fully show the gratitude and appreciation I know we all have for these folks who have made all of our memories and experiences at Shady Grove possible.  But giving you, the Austin Community (and beyond), the opportunity to show your gratitude is one more way we can try.  So please if you have felt the love and have the means give what you can.  100% of all monies raised will go directly to the employees who have been affected by this closure.  Thank you for everything Austin.
