(almost) too good to be
Statement regarding racist threats to our business on Jan 10th:
To say we are overwhelmed with gratitude from the outpouring of support is an understatement. Thank you, Columbus and beyond, for all the kind words, supportive messages, offers of security and monetary tips for our team working that day. We didn't expect all the attention for our closure after we received vile racist threats over the phone, but felt we needed to call out why there was an abrupt closure on a Sunday.
Everyone has been so generous with gift card purchases and tips for our employees who were working that day. We've received countless messages asking what you can do to help...really, reaching out and offering kind words and support is all we could ask for. We also realize that many want to give tangible gifts of support. Here are some suggestions- you can donate to organizations that are close to our hearts:

We feel your love and support and hope that you always speak up when you see something that is not right. In the words of the late John Lewis, "When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to say something; you have to do something." We hear you, Columbus. Keep it up. Thank you.
