• doomie’s cleaning party today! come help out!

    August 9th, 2011quarrygirldoomie's, LA restaurants

    as you may already know, doomie’s home cookin’ (one of the greatest vegetarian restaurants in los angeles), suffered a fire a couple months ago and had to temporarily shut down. thankfully the repairs are officially done, and now they just need to tidy the place up a bit so they can open.

    doomie’s is holding a cleaning party today at their hollywood restaurant from 1-8pm. please come help out for as long as you like, any time within those hours. they’ll have snacks on hand, as well a visit by the frankenstand at 3 o’clock.

    here’s the official info…

    To everyone who expressed interest in helping us clean up the restaurant after the fire: put on those cleaning clothes and get ready!

    All the repairs are done now, so the only thing really holding us back is cleaning everything; the walls, the equipment, all the bottles, etc. We’ll be cleaning, painting, moving stuff, and more, so make sure you wear clothes you don’t care about, ’cause it’ll get soot on it!

    We’ll be there from 1pm – 8pm, feel free to come whenever you’d like, for however long you’d like.

    We’ll have some snacks and drinks around as well. =)

    Thanks for all your support, everyone!

  • Free labor? Uh, no thanks. Sounds sketchy, really. It’s a job they should get professionals to do, not their customers.

    ^ I couldn’t have gone anyway due to work, and I’ve actually never been to Doomie’s or tried their stuff. But that being said, I don’t think QG was wrong to post this at all. For very tiny family-run businesses in this not-so-great economy we’re all experiencing, it’s totally fine, I’d say, to reach out to the community when trying to re-open. Especially during a year when many vegan restaurants are closing around town, you know? Doesn’t seem like there’s any harm in asking for help for an afternoon. Just my two cents.

  • Oh, I’m not saying she shouldn’t put it up. If people were excited, that’s their prerogative. It just seems fishy that they get money to pay for a clean up crew and they decide to use their dedicated customers as free labor instead, paying them in “food.” It colors my opinion of the business. I know the vegan community is tight, and I know people were willing to help, and I will eat there again, but I appreciate being seen as a customer, not a way to save on labor costs.

  • Not wrong to post it; weird for an eatery to request it.

    Maybe I just sympathize because I’m broke as a joke myself these days:D
