The city made the right decision to effectively close restaurants and bars and the impact is that twenty five beloved Yard Bar family members are currently out of work.
The leadership of our bookkeeping team and the community of restauranteurs we're honored to call colleagues has been tremendous and I'm proud to say that Yard Bar has already filed for Mass Layoff Unemployment Benefits on behalf of our team and in an effort to put them at the front of the line for benefit distributions.
While the effort is admirable, unemployment benefits will only cover about 50% of the income these kids are accustomed to. Most already live on razor thin margins. Finding work in the hospitality and pet industry will be challenging at best for the foreseeable future. Our team needs your love.
There will be more to say and more to do.
Right NOW, you can support our Yard Bar family by making a gift to this donation fund.
$20,000 represents roughly 2 weeks of payroll expenses for our team.
100% of the funds raised here will go directly towards supporting our furloughed Yard Bar family members.
Meanwhile, Paul, Keith, Victoria will be here, as long as we can be, running the ship with love, kindness, fun, adventure, acceptance, clean hands, and normal temperatures.
Here's how we'll do things, for now:
Yard Bar will be open TU - SUN from NOON - 8 PM
Take-Out Orders will be accepted on site and preferably online at yardbar.com/order
Please consider placing your order online ahead of time to promote best practices for physical distancing. Take-out orders may be scheduled for Pick-Up at a future time and date.
Our Dog Park will be open to Members ONLY. Members are those dog owners that have a recurring Monthly Membership or an Annual Membership valid for unlimited visits to Yard Bar.
· Access will be limited to one household at a time.
· Access will be limited to 30 minute time slots by reservations. Consecutive reservations are allowed.
· Walk-in Members will be taken if space allows.
We're all in this together. We're all gonna be OK.
With so much love and all the XXX's and OOO's we all need right now,
Kristen and your Yard Bar Family
