Elmer’s Place , which has been operating for 40 years, was promised $20,000 a month for the next three months by the company’s owner. The Barstool Sports’ fund was created before Christmas to help struggling bars and restaurants amid COVID restrictions, according to the Hartford Courant. The fund has almost 28 million dollars and has also helped Piggy’s Cafe and Red Rock Cafe in Hartford.
