“Times are tough right now, we are struggling, we are trying to get by, we are trying to survive. We receive great support from our local community. But this place is a must see here and the way things are going, things just don’t look right. We are trying to do whatever we can to stay afloat, but only as much work, ”said manager Matt Bass in a video submitted to the Barstool Fund.

Bass says the restaurant is “heavily” dependent on its bar which can seat 29 customers but which is not open due to Pennsylvania restrictions. Of the 24 tables inside, there are currently 12 left due to health and safety guidelines.

Professional athletic athletes, Penn Gaming and local citizens are among those who have donated to the relief fund so far.
