Plexi-glass:

Earlier this spring, CRG purchased 11,000 square feet of plexi-glass. The bar & booth dividers we had fabricated arrived this week and installation is underway to prepare for the upcoming phases of reopening. Portable “red houses” were also made to allow for safer walkup & carryout business.


Closed but not silent:

Our DC properties have been secured with plywood and additional security added. Clyde’s of Gallery Place, Old Ebbitt Grill, The Hamilton, & Clyde’s of Georgetown all had reduced hours, outdoor seating cancelled or closed for a couple days due to protestors. They look forward to continuing to reopen and hire back employees soon.
