Most relationships end after a few good days in the sun, but its been 4 years and The JAR Group is just as in love with DUMBO as the day they met. To celebrate this 4-year affair and to give back to the community that fostered it, The JAR Group is joining forces with DumboNYC.com to host this month’s Digital DUMBO! As a way of saying thanks, Digital DUMBO, The JAR Group, & DumboNYC.com are announcing a donation program as a way to give back to local non-profits. The JAR Group and DumboNYC will match all contributions made to the bar tip JAR and donate them to the Brooklyn Community Foundation so you can feel good about sparing the extra bucks. And yes, drinks are still free!
