Proof + Lil Oso Closed June 10 - 18

Updated: Nov 11, 2020

As a company, we know that who we are as business owners and operators is not divisive of who we are as human beings. With respect to the current social climate, we have decided to take some space for ourselves and our team members.

We understand that this closure comes at a unique time in our world. With the ongoing threat of the COVD19 pandemic, we would like to ensure all our guests and supporters that we are not closed due to an outbreak of COVID19, and all of our staff members are safe and well. We believe in full transparency, and that handling our business with the truth is always the best way to proceed. If we ever were to find ourselves in a differing situation, we would make sure this news was public knowledge, so as to protect our community as best we could.

While we take this moment to pause and reflect, please know, we are actively working towards an exciting re-opening for our team and our community. Our Grand Re-Opening will be Friday, June 19th. We are planning quite a celebration - working with new businesses, entertainment, and community organizations. We've got a lot up our sleeves, so please stay tuned to our social media channels as we begin to make some big announcements (and reservation windows!).

So... We know you're all thinking "Which community establishment should I support this week?" Well, we're glad you asked.
