Common Plate Hospitality along with other businesses in Old Town Alexandria are coming together to support the Live Event Industry by participating in the Red Alert #WEMAKEEVENTS movement which supports the Bill S3814, the Restart Act proposed to Congress.
Since the pandemic, thousands of events have been cancelled, 77% of people working in the events industry have lost 100% of their income, 96% of companies have cut staff and businesses are failing due to economic pressure and a lack of income. The events industry was the first to close in March at the beginning of the pandemic and will be one of the last to reopen.
On Sept. 1, we went RED. Augie’s Mussel House & Beer Garden, Mason Social, Urbano116 along with several businesses on the 100 block of King Street lit up their facades and outdoor spaces with red display lighting between 8pm – 12am.
For more information on this initiative, watch this video.
