Sunny’s in Red Hook still closed, running Kickstarter to help fund repairs from Sandy

Sunny’s in sunnier days…

Due to Hurricane Sandy, Sunny’s was badly damaged and we have been unable to reopen. We have been pumping, cleaning and trying to restore order since teh day after the storm. While we have had a ton of volunteers (thank you all) and have made much progress with the clean out, Sunny’s is still in need of major fixes to all our equipment, boilers, hot water heaters, compressors, etc. There are also some issues with the space that need to be addressed as well. We have started a Kickstarter campaign to help raise the money needed to get back up and running. Sunny’s Bar is an icon and will be back helping people enjoy life, music and friends, but we need your help.

Anything you can give is appreciated. We have great rewards on offer as well to help sweeten the pot. Thanks again for your help and good wishes. We will be back better than every (but it will still be the old Sunny’s, just with more reliable equipment).

As mentioned before, iconic Red Hook institution Sunny’s suffered much damage from Hurricane Sandy and have been closed since, despite hope that they’d be back already. The bar started a Kickstarter to help fund repairs (and they are already past their goal!). You can watch their Kickstarter video (which incorporates Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations segment in it) below.
