At 2:01am on Tuesday morning, a day that was supposed to be filled with Irish cheer and whiskey chasers, we closed the doors to our businesses for the foreseeable future. And while we have emptied our coolers, drained our taps and prepared ourselves for the long haul we still have a very major concern on our minds- the awesome staff of bartenders and door hosts at The Standard Tavern and Stella's; A Cocktail Dive.
These are the same amazing people that have helped us raise funds for a countless number of charities and different families of our neighborhood and community. They man our grills, run chili cook offs and even shave your head for mustache roulette. They are the smiling faces that greet you after a long day and have your drink order halfway ready before you even find your favorite bar stool. They are a fantastic group and its for these people that we are asking for help today.
We are asking for any help to ease some of their burden of rent/bills and stress of not knowing what tomorrow may bring for them. We are asking to give them a little bit of peace of mind in a very dark time. All of the funds raised will be distributed between the bartenders and door hosts. If you are able to help, please do. If you aren't, we absolutely understand and we hope that you have everything that you need to get through this crazy time. Please reach out if you need anything. Stay in touch. When this is all over we hope to catch up with all of you over some whiskey. Until then, stay safe and stay well.
