As the holiday season is now upon us, we’re turning to our friends in the beer community to help support us with an “It’s a Wonderful Life” rally. As some of you know, we’re still paying down financial obligations dating back to last year when Hurricane Sandy hit New York. We’re looking for a few guardian angels to help out Jimmy (Stewart) so that we can start off with a clean slate in 2014.
We’re kicking off a very special Rally & Fundraiser this week. This push for your support will run through December 15th, and all you have to do is purchase a gift certificate to enjoy the great beer and food you already love at Jimmy’s No. 43. For every gift certificate of $25 or more that you purchase between now and December 15th, your name will be entered into our Rare Bottle Raffle. And we’ll keep adding your name for every $25 you spend (so if you purchase two $25 or one $50 gift certificate, you’ll get two entries; spend $100 and get four entries, and so on). Winners will be notified the week of December 16th (just in time to share with friends and family).
Our gift certificates never expire, are transferable (they make great gifts!), and can be spent on food and drink all year long. And if you want to support us at the Patron level ($500+) you’ll be invited to special events and receive extra benefits in 2014!
We know you love the food, beer and ambiance here, where you can rely on Jimmy’s No. 43 to meet interesting people and taste awesome beer. Please click on this link to buy gift certificates or join our Patron program via Credibles and keep the beers flowing.
To thank you for your support, we’re hosting a bunch of great events this weekend, starting this Thursday when Jessie and Augie from Carton Brewing will be taking over our taps with 15 different beers (including Epitome); we will be rotating Carton brews through the weekend. On Saturday during the day, cookbook author Louisa Shafia is hosting a Persian Potluck (bring a dish, buy a gift certificate while you’re here!) and Sunday afternoon it’s the Chocolate & Spice Home Fermentation Fest ($20 admission, details here).
We know George Bailey figured out that “no man is a failure who has friends,” and we’re grateful for our friends. Thank you for supporting us this week, and we especially want to thank Augie Carton and Carton Brewing, our friends at Barrier Brewing, Kelly Taylor of Kelso, Sixpoint and Great Brewers for all their help post-Sandy.
