Support for Restaurant Industry Staff

Dear friends & family,

            Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the entire hospitality industry has come to a screeching halt. Effective immediately Monday, March 16, 2020; We were required to close the doors of our four restaurant(s)/Bars (The Heidelberg Bar, Club Above, Agave Tequila Bar, & Siris Cigar Bar) until an indefinite date. This has put 15-20 amazing, hardworking individuals out of work instantly. Prior to the official “shut down”, this outbreak still had a major effect on our businesses volume & staff’s income… Making it a very hard time for all our front of the house & back of the house employees. The expected date that we will be able to re-open is also the day that rent & several other bills are due for everyone. Please help me help our staff take care of themselves & their families during this devastating time.  We are always in the business of taking care of people & now we need your help to take care of our work family. Anything, as much as a “share”, helps tremendously. This is heartbreaking for all us & the last thing I want to see is our staff & their families struggle to make ends meet. Once we can open our doors again… All staff will split the total amount raised/collected, equally & apply it to living expenses.

Thank you & we appreciate your help!!
