For once, gluttony isn’t a sin, it’s encouraged. But let’s not get too carried away, it’s only for one week! Beginning this Sunday, hundreds of DC area restaurants are offering great promotions, featuring special dishes, and donating part of their proceeds to participate in the Great American Dine-Out from September 19th to September 25th. During that week, five percent of participating restaurant’s proceeds will be donated to Share Our Strength, a national non-profit working to combat childhood hunger. For one week, we won’t judge if you eat out every night because the more that diners consume the more dollars will be donated to help make sure that no kid in America will grow up hungry.
For the third year in a row, DC area restaurants will align forces with other restaurants nationwide to support the dynamic organization and its “No Kid Hungry” campaign. Some of my favorite restaurants are participating, such as Art and Soul, P.F. Chang’s, and Carlyle. Try newcomers such as Estadio and Ping Pong Dim Sum.
Attention Tweeters: September 20 is the first-ever Great American Dine Out Tweet-a-Thon! From 9 to 9, please tweet about the Great American Dine Out using the hashtags #DineOut and #NoKidHungry. Follow @Dine_Out on Twitter (@Dine_Out) for the latest developments and RSVP for the Great American Dine Out Facebook event, too.
