Ready for a little good news in 2020? We’ve got some for you…
Chef’s House Burned Down But…
Raelynn, Nate’s wife, found her wedding ring amongst the ashes!
The fire jumped from the street to the house, but it didn’t spread into the farm behind the house. As you can see, some of our cooks harvested all sorts of perfectly-ripe produce for our reopening of Tavern on Friday.
Some of my staff started a GoFundMe which has raised more than $8K to help them with transitional costs. People donated furniture for temporary housing. People wrote checks. Many people offered to donate their wisdom and experience, from people whose houses burned down to architects and real estate experts dedicated to helping Nate and his family put a new house back up.
Because of the Fires and Toxic Air, We Closed For a Solid Week But…
Everyone on staff stayed healthy and are joyously back to work.
Not one of us will ever take blue sky for granted again.
We brought in a scissor lift to suspended plexiglass at the bar top so people can finally return (safely) to the bar. (Look carefully at right – it’s there).
We reconfigured the entire bar area so that it feels fun and vibrant despite perfect social-distancing compliance.
Our chef’s counter will reopen this week when we finish welding a frame for clear dividers.
The first rain of the year has never been so universally welcomed by Oregonians.
The Weather is Changing a Little, But…
The Show Must Go On!
The musicians and I are equally anxious to keeping their artistry alive on our patio as late into fall as possible.
Between temperatures and precipitation, we will be adjusting our performance schedules to the elements. Today, it will be 62 at 11am and 70 this afternoon, so we’ve moved our brunch show to this evening.
