Keep Magical Honky-Tonk Donn's Depot Open

Austin's magical honky tonk Donn's Depot needs our help. Like many restaurants and bars, Donn's has been experiencing hardships due to Covid. They have been able to sustain during this time because of a PPP loan but the money is running out at the end of this month. They will need support to keep up with rent payments and bills until they are able to open back up! 

Through good times and bad, Donn's has always been there. The old train car has turned into a home away from home for many. Donn and his team have been bringing joy to Austin for over 40 years! Donn ticklin' the ivories and making every night a celebration. Tammi with her warm smile and Michelle with another round. The dance floor graced by the likes of The Chick Magnet (he's a great lead btw). The countless memories made over rounds of cold beer, shots and popcorn. The amount of selfies in the ladies restroom is Guinness World Records notable. No matter how your day started, your night would always end well at Donn's. Whether you are a regular or someone who has cruised in once or twice, there is no denying, Donn's energy is magic.

I don't know about y'all but I will need many nights at Donn's when this is all over. So "order another round" now and support the bar we all love. #DonnsForever
