If you would like to have a little Lost Lake in your living room, we have a proposition for you: Slide us a virtual tip here, and we will sign you up for our brand new quarantine-friendly newsletter! A weekly delivery straight to your inbox with cocktails to make at home, recipes from our kitchen, Q+As with Lost Lakers, and maybe even a crossword. Every cent will go directly to Lost Lakers.
In addition, we’ll (eventually) mail you a little card to keep in your wallet that will get you priority seating at Lost Lake when we reopen, and special treats whenever you visit us.
We look forward to connecting with you over crushed ice soon, but until then... #BlessThisCess.
Hi! My name is Shelby Allison, a co-owner of Lost Lake, and I started this fundraiser on behalf of my staff — all of whom were laid off after the Illinois government-mandated closure of all bars + restaurants in Chicago on March 16, 2020, due to COVID-19. These funds will be distributed equally amongst all Lost Lakers (via PayPal, Zelle, and/or Venmo), and will help them to cover some living expenses while they are out of work.
