To be frank: this small paragraph isn’t enough to describe the challenges we face every day due to COVID-19. We wanted to lead by example and closed our business before the government mandate. I have been remarkably proud of our scrappy team for coming together to make difficult business decisions and fight to keep our doors open with the lights on. We are constantly evolving and innovating through this: we researched disposable cans so that we could continue to offer drafts. We built a parklet made of recycled materials to offer outdoor seating. We created a brand-new carry-out friendly menu. We’re constantly pivoting with changing rules, a mutating virus and altering public opinion. We have tried our best to maintain operations in a safe manner for guests and staff. We are faced with a new battle every day, but I am proud of the team standing alongside me to charge ahead.
Giving back to the community is one of my parents top priorities as a small business. My parents have served as board members of Fell's Point Main Street. They have been ongoing donors of many charities; I can list other board positions and awards, but a story of a trying time in our city I believe speaks more. My parents are constantly striving to do more – more for their staff, their neighborhood, complete strangers. One of the most impactful memories I have is when Hurricane Isabel hit. The harbor had risen and completely flooded a nearby street. Restaurants were forced to close and began to toss products. My dad wasn't about to let that happen. He called friends, got grills donated and we cooked for HOURS making anything we could find - feeding emergency responders and people whose homes were flooded. That's the kind of community my parents work to foster.
