As many of you know, they opened Hanky Panky in March of 2020 a week before the COVID-19 Pandemic lockdown. It wasn't until June that they finally got to open their doors again and have quickly become a favorite place for both Germans and Americans in Stuttgart. Just as they start to recover from the re-launch of the business and first lockdown, Germany has now imposed another lockdown for the full month of November that looks like it may be extended into December. With a new baby on the way, and expected birth in January, the lockdown could not have come at a more challenging time.
Hanky Panky has been a special place to Tara and me (and I know many of you as well).
NOTE: This has not been solicited by either of them and they are not aware I am trying to raise money for them. I am doing this because I once owned a small business and I can't imagine how hard it is being shut down completely (twice in a year). I know they are worried but would never say anything to anyone.
The target goal I have set for this campaign should be enough to pay basic expenses for November and December. All funds will go to them.
Please join me and at a minimum, buy a virtual drink, or two, to contribute during the lockdown. Even if you haven't been to Hanky Panky or don't know Jozsef and Hannah, why not give a little to help a local business have an easier time making it through the COVID -19 shutdown. If you are family, extended family, distant friend or friend of someone who contributes please consider helping us reach our goal.
Cheers! Until we drink again at one of our favorite cocktail bars in Stuttgart!
