✨✨✨

Clifford Clinton’s aim during the Great Depression was to nourish the mind, spirit, and imagination as well as the body.

He recognized that above food we all need social support, inventiveness, a sense of wonder and a shared respite from our daily worries. As an extension of that legacy, we have introduced The Neverlands LIVE, a virtual night on the town that we hope will bring you some much-needed entertainment, happiness, and magic during this challenging moment in history.

We also hope it will bring our community together as it socially distances itself—in ways never before possible. We hope people can come together via innovative technologies, a shared sense of experience and common purpose— some of the authentic elements of our community that truly make our nation great.

We seem to have forgotten somewhere in this era the shared compassion and sense of wonder—the readiness to sacrifice for others—the willingness to give, help and support members of our community that we don’t know and who may be in great need. In the Depression that showed in the New Deal, the WPA and the notion of a social safety net; in World War II in Victory Gardens, metal drives and Liberty Bonds. In this moment of crisis, we must merely distance ourselves—stop the virus’ spread—not solely for our own health, but for the health of others who may be more vulnerable than ourselves. This generation will be known not for how we take care of ourselves, but how we take care of others.

This comes with sacrifice—and the front lines as our normal way of life and economy grind to a halt are our Associates who have been forced to remain idle. Their profound sacrifice goes without thanks and recognition, without a clear sense of acknowledgment for their unprecedented contribution to the resolution of this crisis.

So here, I wish to thank them for what they have been forced to give up to break the chain of infection and for having to endure the fear and anxiety of abruptly losing not only their social lives but their means to survive financially. We have created a Virtual Tip jar where you can join us in thanking them by giving as much as you’re able. All proceeds will go directly to our Associates to help them through this challenging time. Please see the link on our Coronavirus Support Page on our website at TheNeverlands.com.

Together we can support our community and come together like never before—even while keeping safe and healthy in our own homes!

We hope you enjoy tonight’s offerings. Please feel free to post ideas for additional offerings so we can continue to grow our virtual community. We will be expanding programming soon to include interviews, history, culinary and cocktail treats and family storytime during the day and early evenings. We hope you join us and discover a virtual adventure in The Neverlands. We wish you and your families all the best, so please take care so we can see you again soon!

WELCOME TO OPENING NIGHT OF
THE NEVERLANDS LIVE: A VIRTUAL EVENING AT CLIFTON’S

The show starts at 8PM sharp! https://bit.ly/theneverlandslive

Clifton's, the iconic eatery founded at the depths of the Great Depression, was born out of adversity. Its founder desired to nourish not just the body, but the minds, spirits and souls of a generation that found itself in need of a respite from the harsh realities of life. With mass unemployment, extraordinary economic uncertainty, and families falling through the woefully inadequate social safety net, Clifton's provided a beacon of light-- a fantasy playland grounded in the spirit of community responsibility, social activism and hope.

As we again find ourselves in extraordinary and unprecedented circumstances, Clifton's wishes to continue to its legacy as that beacon of light-- a source of inspiration, pleasure, hope and nourishment during the most trying times in many generations. Since our physical locations are currently closed, we decided to embrace the innovation and imagination that made Clifton's legendary and bring our community together with The Neverlands LIVE, a virtual night on the town. We will be curating weekly live radio podcasts that will transport listeners into our unique world of imagination-- featuring historic tidbits, a selection of world class music and a host of guests and surprises. Please join us as we will strive to nourish our dynamic and diverse community of individuals, each isolated but resoundingly and assuredly not alone!

Tonight’s debut will be a limited program with hours of entertainment and music, a brief journey with our Clifton’s tour guide and some special secrets including four passwords that unlock further adventures and gifts to enjoy during our time of isolation! Listen to discover the hidden passwords and be the first to email [email protected] each to win a prize. Be the first to EMAIL ALL FOUR passwords to [email protected] and you'll WIN a Classic Tiki Cocktail you can make at home-- including a bottle of premium rum, a rare Clifton's Tiki mug, and all the ingredients necessary for your own Polynesian adventure!
Each week we will expand our offering, with video segments, Quarantending tips for the in-home bar, dance lessons, special guests and Magic! Please share these virtual evenings with us and the Clifton's community LIVE each weekend online and on our social media platforms until we may again safely open our doors.

Please remember to be safe and stay healthy as we join together in this extraordinary time! We look forward to that wondrous evening when we will again serve you at Clifton’s Republic and The Edison.
