Industry Rallies for Andrew Lostetter, Dallas Bartender Injured in Snowboarding Accident

Categories: Events

Andrew Lostetter has been a bartender in Dallas for almost 15 years, serving at Fireside Pies, Neighborhood Services Tavern and Marquee Grill. Recently he was snowboarding in Breckenridge, Colorado, when he was hit by a wayward skier and propelled into a tree.

The impact caused four fractures to his pelvis, dislocated his sacrum from his pelvis and fractured two vertebrae. Lostetter was flown to Denver, where he had two surgeries. He made it back home to Dallas after two weeks in rehab, but won't be able to work again for several months.

To help offset the insurmountable hospital bills and loss of wages, Jason Kosmas of Marquee Grill and Dub Davis of The Dram are holding fundraisers to benefit their good friend, Lostetter.

This Sunday, April 22, Marquee Grill will host a benefit from 7 to 11 p.m, which will include a silent auction and some of Dallas' most notable mixologists and chefs will auction off their time for private events.

Next Sunday, April 29 from 7 to 12 p.m., The Dram will host a similar fundraiser, including items by local artists, bar tabs at different spots around the city and some fine spirits from local distributors. There will a band, DJs and a food truck.

Both of these events are open to the public and no reservations or invites are needed. Just show up with a gratuitous spirit and mingle with the local culinary, bar-tending and service industry community.

In addition to the silent auctions, a portion of sales from both events will go toward Andrew's expenses.

Is there a way to help without attending an event?  We know Andrew from his Cuba Libre days, but sadly are suburb/baby restricted and can't make it out.
