Think about Diamondback Tavern this Sunday to help out a local waiter who was badly injured trying to break up a fight.
They're charging a $5 cover and donating 25% of the food bills for Groomes. Lee Biars, who helps run the PR for the two restaurants, let me know about the fundraiser:
Rob is the nicest and most harmless guy you would ever meet and what happened to him is truly disgusting.
Not only is Rob one of our best servers at either restaurant, he's very genuine and always has a positive attitude regardless of how his day has been going (part of what makes him such a good server).
Even after being attacked and stuck in his house until his wounds get better, he isn't down about it even though he has every reason to be. The best thing that has come out of this tragedy is that we realize we aren't just a restaurant staff, but a family. Many of our employees have gone out of their way to do something for Rob, bringing him food, checking up on him, or just keeping him company. And for what it's worth, he has not once asked us to do anything for him.
