Community in Action

January 14, 2010

I know I should be telling you how to donate to the Red Cross to help out in Haiti, but this is a food blog.  This email from Marco (owner) was forwarded to me by a friend.  I wonder if a group of friends could go in on a $1000.00 voucher together. . .

Dear Customers and Friends,

Needless to say this past month has been an extremely emotional one.  The decision to close Curras  was very difficult and did not come easily for us.  However, when the community heard about our situation, the out pouring of love and support for the restaurant was very touching.  Several customers have offered to help with financing, others with advising, and others … elbow grease.   I and the staff at Curras can’t thank you enough!

When Curras reopens on January 18 there will be many improvements – some you will see immediately and others that are being built into our operations.  You will find a heated & enclosed patio (for the winter), a new menu, and new marketing ideas.  Chef Stewart and I have been working to create a more affordable menu (as requested by customers) that still delivers the unique, great quality and flavors you have come to know from Curras.  For those who desire the exotic experience of our previous menus, Chef Stewart will be offering many delights on his nightly specials menu.

Getting the doors reopened is one hurdle, keeping them open is another. With the economy the way it is – we aren’t out of the woods yet.    Additional money has to be raised quickly to see Curras into the future.  We are going to do this with YOUR HELP.   We would like to offer you a special opportunity to take a stake in our future by purchasing $1,200 worth of Curras “dollars” for $1,000.  These are not coupons, but real Curras currency – more like food vouchers.

We hope you see this as a chance for you help us continue serving as your neighborhood restaurant, a way to get great value for your money and an opportunity to enjoy Curras food!   Please feel free to tell your friends, but let them know that this opportunity is limited to customers who RSVP.

Patron Appreciation VIP Event

We’re throwing an exclusive “reopening” party on Sunday, January 17th from  5:00 – 7:00pm for all of our patrons who want to help out by buying $1000 Curras Certificates.   Please RSVP via email or phone (see below) then come by to have a drink and appetizers with myself and Chef Stewart and check out the new menu and our enclosed patio.   You will be able to pick up your Curras certificates here and  begin enjoying them starting in February.   Please, let me thank you a head of time for helping out in this way.  It will make all the difference in the future of Curras.

God Bless!

    Interesting idea about a patronage tier for restaurants. I will be back at Curras for sure and hope to make it my summer hang out again.
