Tip Your Sassafras Staff

Hello. It's your old friend John Deer.  I'm the only one in Sassafras right now, and it's really quiet. I miss the clink of the glasses, the sound of people laughing, and the sweet sound of our live jazz. As you know, the chaps had to temporarily close the bar on March 16th as a result of restrictions due to COVID-19. It was a tough decision but the health and well being of our beloved customers and staff is paramount to them.

I'm really missing my Sass family right now, and I'm sure you do too. This fund has been established to help support them during this difficult time. All donations will be split amongst the staff. Thank you and we look forward to toasting with you again soon!

Please take care of yourself and your family. We will get through this together.
