#barHappy Cares: How You Can Help Hurricane Sandy Relief

By now, we’re sure you’ve all seen the billions of dollars of damage and destruction Superstorm Sandy caused to the Northeast. Six barHappy regions were in the storm’s path, with New York City and Jersey Shore bearing the brunt of the devastation  The storm also affected our barHappy New York team members, who — like the rest of the city — are quickly trying to get back on their feet.

barHappy is committed to getting our friends and colleagues in New York and Jersey Shore back out and about, enjoying all the great restaurants and bars in their area, so we’re calling on the rest of the barHappy community to help out.

Here’s how you can help in the recovery effort:

1. Donate to the Red Cross disaster relief effort and/or sign up to give blood (hundreds of blood drives on the coast have been cancelled).

2. If you live in affected areas, help surrounding bars and restaurants get back to normal. Don’t hesitate to chip in at your favorite local hang-out to help with whatever they need, even if it’s just showing up and tipping well.

3. Use the hashtag #barHappyCares on Twitter to join in recovery conversation. If you have a need or the ability to meet someone else’s, please use this hashtag to connect with local business owners. We’ll be closely monitoring conversation and directing people to help. We’ll also be tweeting new business reopening information on our @barHappy account.

We can’t wait to have everyone back up and running again, so we can go out and grab a drink together.
