Ann Arbor Hospitality Current Magazine Flatten the Curve
Help Ann Arbor-area restaurants weather the crisis with your support.

While many of us are struggling to adjust to a work-from-home-life during the COVID-19 crisis, there are people working in the hospitality industry who don’t have the option to work at all. From bartenders and servers to hotel clerks and event venue staff, people are being deeply impacted financially from shutdowns caused by the coronavirus. You can help alleviate this strain on local service-based businesses by ordering a t-shirt from Underground Printing’s Ann Arbor Hospitality Fundraiser.

The t-shirts feature the slogan “Flatten the Curve: Ann Arbor Hospitality United Against COVID-19.” 100 percent of the proceeds go to 61 participating businesses and their employees, including The Ark, HopCat, The Blind Pig, as well as others affected by cancellations and closures. “Flatten the curve” references efforts to reduce the spike in infection numbers during an outbreak, a phrase originated by University of Michigan medical historian Dr. Howard Markel years ago. 

While it’s vital to remain vigilant with social distancing during this pandemic, it’s also important to support our local service workers. You can do that by ordering a very stylish and comfy Flatten the Curve shirt ($24)!! The order form closes at midnight on Monday, March 30, so don’t drag your feet on this one. Click here to order yours today.
