I am sad to be writing this. But it is not without hope and joy. We have a great community and family!
This too shall pass and The Table will be here to pick up where we left off.
I think about what you, our people want to know and need to hear in times like these?
We have set up PayPal and Venmo account so we can continue to sell gift certificates and we’ll be running weekly delivery specials on Wednesdays via our Instagram Stories… 50% of all these sales will go directly to our staff. We also intend on offering a free crew meal for our displaced neighbors on 6th Ave every Thursday until we can no longer support this effort to aid our community.
If you wish to donate to this effort please email or message us on social media.
Saturday before the closure order came down from the Governor’s office we had a meeting about the likelihood of a closure in the near future, we were not blindsided by this. I have officially laid off our staff to better allow them to receive full unemployment although it is unlikely to match their current wages. They are good as to be expected and are planning to return when we do. I am deeply amazed by their resolve and optimism. We are all in agreement of our moral and social obligation to everyone in seeing the need for these closures.
Lastly, Thank you, Thank you all for your love and support! But for now, stay home, follow the direction and guidance of experts. With a calm spirit practice social distancing. This is not the end of the world.
