Sorry but Ray was a dick and his place sucked ten years ago and he's still a dick and the place still sucks. But we should "save" it just because it's been there for a long time? Lame.

Yeah, 15% seems awfully stingy. 50% of sales would be more agreeable while still giving the bar a reasonable return. It's a benefit, not a promotion. Bar should step up to the plate.

anon 2:40 - perhaps because sidewalk cafe has it's own costs to account for.

Okay-
The benefit has a $5 donation to get in, as well as a bucket that will be going around during the acts. 100% of that is going to Ray.
Sidewalk is donating their space, and their employees, 15% is what they can afford of the food sales. If you guys think it should be more, feel free to donate more, it'd really help out.
