Eastside Tavern

If you’d like to by a “Pre-Paid Bar Tab” for future use when this Corona Virus tragedy passes Eastside would greatly appreciate it. This will help us have some money coming in to help pay the bills. The abrupt shut down of bars especially those that don’t serve food is financially devastating and there was no way an already struggling business could prepare for it.
It’s really easy to send money! All you have to do is go to my FB account https://www.facebook.com/snuccio2 then go to FB messenger click on the “i” symbol top right then scroll down to “pay” and send the amount you’d like to have applied to your Pre-Paid Bar Tab at Eastside..

Latest Information

UPDATED: April 3, 2020

The Columbia Convention and Visitors Bureau’s (CVB) first priority is the safety and health of its visitors, its industry partners and its team. While the risk of contracting COVID-19 is low, our hospitality community is carefully following the guidelines of the U.S. Department of State and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our local health department authorities. The city of Columbia and the county of Boone will be under a Stay at Home order beginning Wednesday, March 25th at 8:00 a.m.

At this time, there are multiple confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Boone County. The Columbia CVB highly recommends travelers follow protocols directed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds
  • If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol
  • Cough into your elbow and sneeze into a tissue and throw the tissue in the trash
  • Consult with a doctor before traveling when sick
  • Stay up-to-date on vaccinations
  • Avoid contact with people who are already sick
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  • Be aware of the latest travel advisories from the CDC and U.S. State Department

Should you find yourself feeling ill while in Columbia and Boone County, the region is served by these major healthcare providers:

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has activated a statewide public hotline for citizens or providers needing guidance regarding COVID-19. The hotline is open and can be reached at 877.435.8411. The hotline is being operated by medical professionals and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe to travel to Columbia and/or Missouri?

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has consistently advised the public to practice everyday preventative measures to help stop the spread of germs, as typical in the current flu and respiratory disease season. There are no travel restrictions or advisories in the domestic U.S., which includes Columbia, Boone County and the state of Missouri. If you are concerned about travel within the United States, please check updated CDC recommendations here.

Are there any closures of note for visitors to Columbia, such as attractions, hotels, restaurants or meeting venues?

The University of Missouri announced on March 11 that it is modifying operations and classes, and the most current information on COVID-19 at Mizzou can be found here. Operations are also altered at Columbia College and Stephens College. The May commencement ceremonies for each institution have also been canceled or postponed. The Columbia Mall is operating under reduced hours. As is true in every other city, residents and visitors alike are asked to observe public health recommendations. Many other local businesses are operating are now using curbside pickup and/or delivery. The CVB has created an online listing that is being updated constantly. The city of Columbia and the county of Boone will be under a Stay at Home order beginning Wednesday, March 25th at 8:00 a.m.

What is the impact on the tourism industry in Columbia and Boone County?

The decision to cancel meetings and events is creating and will continue to result in a significant impact on the local economy and to the workers whose jobs and livelihoods are affected by reductions in these events. Over 11,000 people in Boone County directly or indirectly depend on tourism for their job.

CVB Strategy

The Columbia Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) team is working remotely under Columbia’s Stay at Home Order (Order 2020-03). During this incredibly difficult time for the tourism industry, the CVB is focused on the following:

  • Working closely with our hoteliers and other industry partners to understand the impact the pandemic is having on their business and how the CVB can help.
  • Planning for marketing recovery and relaunch once travel begins to grow again. We want to be ready to capture visitors who will be looking to travel as quickly and effectively as possible.
  • Compiling helpful and positive information to distribute locally via the CVB’s website and social media.
  • Adjusting the CVB’s budget to ensure losses are accounted for and to plan for when travelers are planning trips again.
  • Staying in constant communication with sports events planners and our local sports stakeholders to stay up-to-date on cancellations, postponements, and possible reschedulings.

If you have additional questions concerning CVB operations, please don’t hesitate to contact the Columbia CVB. Contact Amy Schneider via email at Amy.Schneider@CoMo.gov

Who is counting down to the start of the True/False Film Fest?! I know I am!

12 movies later, I am officially ready to go and anxiously awaiting the start of the ultimate four-day movie marathon.

But, there is more to the True/False Film Fest than independent films.

From March March, art installations, music and merch, there is so much to see and do for everyone, even if you aren’t going to watch the films.

March March

March March has to be one of the most exciting parts of the True/False experience!

It’s a parade like no other, and it is going to be a sight to see. This parade kicks off the fest Friday evening in the District.

Everything begins at the Boone County Courthouse Square, and the march goes down 9th Street to the Sculpture Yard outside Missouri Theatre.

It’s a free event, and everyone is invited to either be part of the parade or be a spectator. I plan on being a spectator this first time so I can watch it happen firsthand, and I just can’t wait!

Art

True/False has incorporated Art  into the fest from the very beginning.

This year’s pieces are centered around the Foresight concept.

These installations are captivating, engaging and worth a trip downtown just to see what these artists ave created.

They are dispersed throughout the fest, and I am looking forward to seeing each artist’s individual take on Foresight.

Music & Concerts

So. Much. Music.

There will be so many musicians in town for the fest! Each of them have their own style, and you can even hear their tracks on the True/False website.

I have already gone through and know who I really want to see perform. Who are you most excited for?

Merch

The Fest Merch store is open! Located in the Sager Braudis Gallery, 1025 E Walnut Street, is it conveniently where the Box Office is located, too.

You must take a look and see all the True/False merchandise you can take home to commemorate exciting weekend you are bound to have. 

In late March there will be merch available for purchase online. Until then, the store is worth a visit. Happy shopping!

Continue reading...

Did you see all the films that are going to be showing at the True/False Film Fest? If you haven’t, check them out!

The films are all so unique and interesting, how can I choose which to see? Why are they all so great?!

To figure out what films make the cut and when I can see them, I have created a game plan that could actually work.

Here we go!

Step 1: Pick your favorite films

I was on the True/False website at 6:01 p.m. om February 12, just one minute after the films would for sure be listed.

Whoa, was I ever impressed with all the film descriptions I was reading! So impressed that after I read through them once, I immediately read through them again making internal notes on which ones I was the most interested in seeing.

This process was more helpful than I knew at the time. I automatically found 10 films I wanted to see. After a second look though, the number jumped to 14.

That’s nothing though.

When she first looked, my friend Megan had 12 films she knew she wanted to see. When she looked at them all again, she added four more to the list. The more you look at the film list, the more likely you are to add to your watch list!

It has to be a True/False trick. But it worked! Now on to the next step.

Step 2: Look at the schedule

Time to take in when and where all my film favorites are playing!

When I first looked at the schedule, I felt overwhelmed. There is a lot of information to take in, and there is just a lot going on.

Let’s walk through it.

There is an individual schedule for each day of the fest. The film start and end times are listed for each of the 11 venues where you watch the films.

There is also a column for Other Music and Events. This shockingly details other times you can listen to music and attend various events throughout the fest. I am definitely going to take a look at these two columns before and during the fest; I want to go to March March and experience other fun things!

I feel like I’ve grasped the schedule and understand it, so let’s move on to Step 3, where it all comes together.

Step 3: Plan the weekend

I’m looking at this schedule right now with my 14 favorite films ready to go, and I just hope this all works out.

I really want it to be possible to see all the films I’m interested in (and maybe two or three more).

We have to consider the film length, where the film is being shown, how far away my next film venue is, ALL of the things.

Luckily, the True/False team thought of all of that.

The schedule includes all of the films, where they are playing and when exact moment they start and end. But wait, there’s more!

At the bottom of the Thursday Schedule, there is a chart showing how far of a walk it is between venues. ALL the venues. This is going to be crucial as I plan out which films I want to see, where I can see them and how long of a walk I have to the next one.

They really did think of everything!

I am going to buckle down and make my plan tonight so I am ready to go when the time comes to login to the True/False system and make my reservations. Good luck to all of us, and may we all reserve the films and times we hope for!

Have you ever been to the True/False Film Fest? Because I have not. 

I’m Amanda, the Community Relations Specialist for the Columbia Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB). I have lived in Columbia for a total of six years (four during college, two most recently). 

While living here, and especially working for the CVB, I’ve heard a lot about the fest. The films, the music, the art, everything worth mentioning, I’ve heard about it. I’ve just never experienced it for myself.

That all changes this year! This is my time to fully invest and go all-in to the True/False Film Fest weekend. 

And I’m taking you all with me. 

This is the beginning of my blog series, True/False for a First-Timer. Together, we are going to go from start to finish through the fest. 

For those of you who are new to True/False, too, my goal is to help you prepare and have a wonderful film-watching experience. And for those who have gone once or twice (or every year), please share your wisdom. Every little bit helps!

Now, before every venture, I personally believe research should be completed to make sure you know as much as you can so you have the most worthwhile experience. 

Let’s learn something new!

The very first True/False Film Fest took place in Columbia in 2003. From the very beginning, it has been about nonfiction cinema. 

There have been numerous films featured in this fest that have gone on to be nominated (and even won) at the Oscars in the Documentary (Feature) category. Check out the list of films below.

From what I’ve heard, True/False is not a solo adventure. If you’ve been through the fest before, what advice would you give to someone who’s never gone before? If you’re a first-timer like me, what questions about the True/False Film Fest do you have?

Let the True/False adventures begin!
