Save your pots and pans for another day

Wendesday, October 5, 2005 is "Dine For America" day!

After Sept. 11, 2001, some Seattle restaurants pulled together and decided to donate the profits from one day to the American Red Cross's relief fund. When restaurants from other cities heard about their efforts, they joined in. Not just a few- 8,000 restaurants. They called it "Dine For America" day, and they raised $20 MILLION dollars for disaster relief. HOLY COW! $20 MILLION DOLLARS!

They're doing it again this week, raising money for the American Red Cross's Disaster Relief Fund, benefiting disaster victims in the United States. Restaurants such as Olive Garden, Smokey Bones, Red Lobster, Applebee's, Arby's, Macaroni Grill, TGI Friday's, Chuck E. Cheese, and THOUSANDS of other national and local restaurants are involved. As of 9/27, over 13,000 restaurants were invloved, so there has to be some near each one of us. You can find a complete list HERE.

Go out for breakfast. Go out for lunch. Go out for dinner. Just go out and eat on October 5. Come on.. you know you want to! You gotta eat- you might as well make it worth something other than a full belly.
