The Travail Kickstarter Just Went Live, Time to Freak Out

New, 1 comment


Here it is, the much-anticipated Travail Kickstarter. The Kickstarter, named "Travail: Democratizing Fine Dining in Robbinsdale, MN," launched less than 20 minutes ago and already has 19 backers and almost $4,000 (of a $75,000 goal) as of 9:06 a.m. The project will fund the Robbinsdale construction of Travail's new space for both Travail 2.0 and its new project, The Rookery. As the Travailians put it, "We have a vision for eating nirvana and we need your help to build it. #PrevailTravail." They also write:

We want to progress the Travail concept even further. We will continue with the things we are known for—HACKING fine dining, our attention to detail, and artistically designed cuisine produced and served by our incomparable chefs. The music will still be bumpin', there will still be shenanigans, the tables will still be first-come first-served, and if you want to throw down in a beer-chugging contest, you will most likely be destroyed by one of us. But, we want to push the boundaries further than we ever have with flavors, textures, plating, and serving. We also want to create an interactive connection with our diners through new table-side techniques–constantly evolving, progressing, and challenging ourselves.

There are incentives for donations from $10 all the way up to $10,000, which include:

$50: 2014 Travail Sexy Chef Calendar + name on the family wall + two spots at Prevailed party
$100: one ticket to Travail's soft opening + everything at $50
$250: two chances to jump the line in 2014 + everything at $100 (with two tickets to the soft opening instead of one)
$500: two spots in a cooking class taught by one of the Travailians + 2 signature Travail aprons + everything at $250
$5,000: a full year of jumping the line at Travail + lots of other stuff already mentioned
$10,000: a private party for 40 at Travail + lots of other incentives
