Employee Relief Fund
With heavy hearts, it’s time to publicly address the fact that we are closed indefinitely in an effort to battle COVID-19. As it stands, our doors shall remain shuttered until the situation is brought under control, and the government lifts its mandatory closures. The honest answer to those asking when this will be, is that we don’t know. It can’t be understated how much this affects our business… And most importantly, our staff. While we are doing everything we can as a business to continue to support them, it’s you the customer and your generosity when patronizing our bar that will be the biggest loss. That said, we have gotten many inquiries as to how you guys can help, and it’s incredibly touching. We decided to create PayPal and Venmo accounts for our staff so that you may virtually continue your support for your favorite staff in town! If you are one of the more fortunate in this otherwise devastating situation, please consider tipping in whatever capacity you can. These funds will be distributed evenly between the distressed staff at Boone & Crockett, The Cooperage, Snack Boys, and Taco Moto. We appreciate everyone doing what they can while our industry sails blind through these uncharted waters. This is undoubtedly our darkest moment. It’s hard. It’s scary. There is a cloud of uncertainty hanging over our heads that is new to us all. There is no way to tell where this puts us in the end. But know this- our industry is strong. Our bonds unbreakable. This is temporary. We will prevail, and with your help, our staff will survive. Big Love from the Boone|Coop|Snack|Taco family. Cheers.
