THEMUSEUM Supports Local Hospitality Industry

Posted on: November 26, 2020 by THEMUSEUM

Membership Drive to Include $50 Gift Card to Local Restaurants 

Kitchener, ON – With a Black Friday kick-off, THEMUSEUM puts a focus on supporting local with its annual holiday membership promotion. Every person purchasing a Family Membership, as a gift for others or themselves, or extending their current Membership to THEMUSEUM will save $25.00 and receive a $50.00 gift card to select local bars and restaurants through the initiative #SupportHospitalityKW. 

Partnering with numerous restaurants and bars over the years, THEMUSEUM has created hugely successful food and beverage events with sellout crowds. With this Membership drive, they now plan to help their partners in the hospitality industry in Kitchener-Waterloo.

The recent PickleFest, virtually attended by 250 plus more than 1000 at-home viewers, was once again able to highlight local hospitality partners in a sold-out event. THEMUSEUM is taking this support one step further with 100% of the gift card funds going to the respective bars and restaurants. 

We are all in this together was an early theme of the pandemic but now restaurant and bar owners are not feeling the love, having very little opportunity for revenue and having to lay off so many staff”, said David Marskell, CEO of THEMUSEUM. “This initiative, I believe, is a win for all involved and I hope the community rallies to support both the hospitality industry and the arts & culture industry, while ultimately benefiting themselves!”

THEMUSEUM has had a wonderful response from their restaurant partners with many appreciating the gesture. When asked to participate, Chef Denis of Swine and Vine commented, “Thank you for this wonderful idea and including us. We appreciate the support and we hope to continue to be a part of THEMUSEUM’s future events.”

The promotion is valid only on Family Memberships, discounted $25, plus a $50 gift card to the restaurant of their choice. Dual Memberships are also included in the promotion, which are $80 and include a $25 gift card to their selected restaurant. 

Participating establishments include:

Beertown Public House

Graffiti Market

Real T Lounge Fuelled by ChefD

Bhīma’s Warung

The Rich Uncle Tavern

Bobby O’Brien’s
