Boone from Trusty’s needs your help

If there’s one thing I love about DC, it’s the way that the people rally around their bars and bartenders. Last year when there was a fire at The Tune Inn that nearly claimed the business’ future, residents rallied around their people and held a benefit to help their bartenders. Tonight, Hill East does the same for Trusty’s Full Serve Bar bartender Mike Boone, who was stabbed six times trying to stop a purse snatching outside the Potomac Avenue bar on May 1st.

Boone was med-evaced, had several surgeries to save his life, and is now facing some hefty medical bills and a recovery process that will keep him off his feet for a bit. C’mon out to Trusty’s and do a good turn for a bartender who just wanted to protect his patrons.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
