Duffy’s Irish Pub, a famous bar in Washington, D.C., has launched an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds to reopen the establishment first founded by Andy Duffy. Famous for its wings and a noted gathering place in DC, the restaurant and bar has been closed for some time. According to the Andy Duffy, he was forced to close the bar after economic circumstances, including early debt from the opening of the pub, made it impossible for him to continue operations. However, a unique opportunity has come about to reopen to allow him to come back. “This campaign is just about asking for a little help to get one of DC’s best neighborhood bars back open again. I am not asking for donations, I am just asking for your advance patronage. Be a part of the rebirth of Duffy’s!”
Duffy’s Irish Pub is located at 2106 Vermont Ave NW in Washington, DC. Customers have the opportunity, through the IndieGoGo campaign, to help bring Duffy’s back to the neighborhood. “You are welcome to buy me a beer. That always helps. The only other thing I need is your support to be a customer of Duffy’s. Pre-purchase meals, rent out the entire restaurant or purchase some merchandise. Every dollar pre-purchased helps me pay off debt and get the restaurant back open for business,” he says.
As part of the IndieGoGo campaign, located at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/duffy-s-irish-pub-washington-dc#/story, pledge levels are available ranging from $5.00 to $20,000. Donors have a variety of perks available to them, from the chance to buy a beer for Andy to renting the entire establishment for the night.
