Warehouse 138 Heart & Soul
Organized by: TheWarehouse Onethirtyeight
Ellie here, most of you know me and my history with this bar. For those that don't, i’ll give you a little background. In 1991, shortly after my family moved to Marietta from Alabama, my mom walked into Faces Lounge and found home. She immediately became a “regular”, followed by my brother Michael (who eventually would marry Dawn Murphy, former owner of Faces) and I, inevitably was next. I actually turned 21 years old in this bar (shhh..). In 2007 I started working in the kitchen of Faces. Johnny Woo Woo taught me how to cook the best quesadilla, the juiciest steak and many other things. The one thing I remember most is him telling me “give it your heart and soul and you’ll never get it back, but you won't be sorry”. Well Woo Woo was right! It was like he knew the road ahead. Through several owners, even more managers and eventually the closing of the doors, I am still here. Along with many of you, I was devastated to think of no more Faces. As my heart broke, I began think I can not let this happen. I will not let this happen! This bar is my heart and soul! So with the help of great friends and now business partners with a lot of faith, we have “WAREHOUSE 138”, still with the same heart and soul as “Faces”, just a new name and fresh face.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO GET US OVER THE FINISH LINE
With renovations and licensing taking longer than anticipated, funds have considerably dwindled. The bottom line is WE ARE BROKE. So, as much as we hate to do it, it is the only thing we can think to do. We are asking YOU, Faces’ friends and family, to please help us. We need donations. ANY donations. We know, as well as all of you that times are tough and no donation is too small. We appreciate anything you are able to spare. Our most pressing issue is RENT. Yes, even though we have not opened yet we have to pay rent every month. We have to get this paid ASAP. So come on everyone! Dig deep and help us by donating whatever you are able to. Let’s keep the heart of Faces’ alive and get Warehouse 138’s door’s open. Help us get this party started!
- Those donating $50 - $100 will receive a Certificate to be displayed on the “138 Special Wall of Fame” for the grand opening.
- Those donating $100 and up will receive, along with the Certificate, a personal invitation to the soft opening night for a sneak peek before the Grand Opening of Warehouse 138.
You can also drop any donation in the mail slot of the door at Warehouse 138.
