Hooligans restaurant and bar has been a mainstay on the corner of Farwell and North Avenue for the past 36 years, and they've never experienced anything like this. It's really taken a toll on owner Mark Buesing.

"It's hard, it's really hard to stay positive," he says. "I mean, when it first hit you go into a deep depression, drinking and just being stressed. And then just realizing that there are so many people that want to make sure you succeed and as the owner, I don't want to let my staff down."

Mark has been getting help from many different directions, including an old friend.
"I had a friend that reached out to me that I used to work with years back," Buesing says. "She was offering to come in cook for free, just to help get everything going. I'm like well I got people on staff that are willing to work that I can pay but she's like 'let me at least do the social media.' She has been doing a phenomenal job on four to five different things every day."
