Third Rail Virtual Tip Jar

As you may know, Third Rail Tavern made the difficult decision to close from now through the end of March (at the earliest) due to COVID-19. We fully support every measure it takes to keep our community healthy, but the closure of our restaurant will cause a major strain on workers across the hospitality industry—whose livelihoods depend on people gathering together. This includes our lovely staff that you all have grown to know, love, and appreciate.  

We are humbly asking our community to help our staff get through this difficult time. If you would like (and are able, we know this is a difficult time for all) to help our beloved and charming staff weather this storm, you can use this "Virtual Tip Jar"!

Every dollar raised here will go to and be equitably distributed among our bartenders, servers, and cooks.  We greatly appreciate your support!

Let's all stay healthy, and take care of each other.
