Let's just be clear about it: this shit is hard. And can punish. It's one of those things that only somebody who's done it, or is doing it, knows.

We are proud to invite service industry and bar/nightlife employees to our “Decompression” weekly support group, Monday nights from 6-8PM at
GMan Tavern. This is for industry folks to get together and support each other, led by David Gasper, who has worked at Metro/Smart Bar for 6 years
and recently received his masters in clinical mental health counseling.

Respectfully, there's a nice DB4D industry discount on drinks, free coffee, and periodically other ways to help our industry family with life and
self care. We offer a safe space to share, to vent, to listen, and to hopefully find coping mechanisms and more, among friends.
