I really wanted this to be a nice post about Dining Out For Life. A nice restaurant + you = $$ for AIDS research. Simple and fun and good for all, but the website is not working. When it does start working, you’ll be able to search by city and find a restaurant near you that will donate a percentage of their sales for the day on Thursday, April 30th. Last year, some of the restaurants in Chicago donated up to 50% of the sales to this cause. I’ll update as soon as they get their shizz together. Stay tuned!
UPDATE: The site is now fully functional and you can see all of Chicago’s participating restaurants by clicking here. The places donating 50% of their proceeds are Big Jones in Andersonville and Pars Cove in Lincoln Park. All DOFL donations are made to AIDSCare,”Since 1992, AIDSCare has been dedicated to improving the quality of life for Chicagoans with HIV/AIDS through housing, compassionate care and support services. Now in its 16th year, AIDSCare’s Programs have assisted over 300 homeless and low-income children, families and adults living with AIDS to achieve stable housing, improve wellness, and transition toward greater independence.”
