Andrew Lostetter, bartender at The Marquee, and formerly of Neighborhood Services Tavern and Fireside Pies, was injured in a ski accident in Breckenridge, Colorado last month. A skier lost control, struck Andrew, and propelled him into a tree. His extensive injuries included a fractured pelvis (four places), two fractured vertebrae, and a dislocated sacrum, the triangular bone at the end of the spine. Lostetter has already undergone two surgeries in Denver and two weeks of rehabilitation. He is back in Dallas now but it looks like he won’t be able to get back to shaking basil gimlets for at least 3 months.
Lostetter’s friends are rallying support to help off set his medical bills and lost wages. So far, two fundraisers are planned.
The Marquee Grill will host an event on April 22 from 7-11 pm. There will be a silent auction that will include baskets of Scotch, all-inclusive dinners, and many talented mixologists and chefs will be auctioning their services for private events.
The Dram will also host an event on April 29 from 7-12 pm. There will be a huge raffle at Dram, which will include pieces by local artists, bar tabs around the city, dinners from your favorite hot spots, and wine and spirits goodies. There will be a band, DJs, and a food truck.
All proceeds from sales at both events and funds from the silent auction and raffle will benefit Lostetter. Do a good deed and get to hang out with Dallas’ finest mixologists.
