Stand Up Against Violence and Crime

p>Chris Hideaway and Sports Bar is asking residents to come together and take a stand against violence and crime in the community and around the nation as we look back at the events that have occurred within the past week.

Chris Hideaway does not encourage and will not tolerate violence in and around the establishment. It is a place where residents and visitors of all backgrounds, gender and ethnicity race come together to relax and enjoy themselves.

Further, Chris Hideaway stands with the nation against the most recent killings of Alton Sterling by two police officers in Louisiana, Philando Castile in Minnesota and the tragic killing of five police officers in Dallas.

The staff and management of Chris Hideaway always have and will continue to work with the Virgin Islands Police Department to ensure that not only our customers are safe but the Virgin Islands community at large.

In recognition and remembrance of the five fallen police officers in Dallas, Chris Hideaway will have a free cover charge for all non-uniformed police officers on weekends for the remainder of July and August.

Likewise, in honor of Sterling and Castile, there will be discounts on mixed drinks and a dollar from each beer sold for the month of July 15 will be donated to a nonprofit organization in our community.

Chris Hideaway urges the community to stand strong and not let what happened in Louisiana or Dallas happen in the Virgin Islands.
