August 29th will mark the Anniversary of the greatest disaster to befall the United States. I am speaking of course of Hurricane Katrina. While the task of rebuilding continues and progress is being made daily, there is still much that needs to be done and much that needs to be funded.

Well the organization Share Our Strength, has come up with a way that all Americans can help by going out to eat (I know that this will be difficult for us all...but it is for a good cause Wink ) Thousands of dining establishments nationwide will be donating a percentage of all their sales made on the 29th twords rebuilding efforts in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. For more information and a participating establishments please check out this link:

To our international friends please remember us on this day and drink a toast to our continued recovery....to those in the U.S. we have a job to do... Go out and eat and drink until it hurts.... remember it is for a good cause

Alas! I'm dismayed to see there aren't really many or interesting restaurants in my area. OTOH, at the very bottom of the page there is a link to making a direct contribution and mine is already made.

Thanks for making us aware of the opportunity. I've also posted it at Chowhound in case it will get some serious action there. Wink

Thanks Rainey!!!!!!!!!! Its hard to believe that a year has passed...for our part, the Crescent City Farmers Market will ajourn our regularly scheduled mkt an hour early and had have a communal "Thanksgiving dinner" with CUstomers welcome to purchase food on sale or to bring their own picnic style repast. It has stricken a responsive in all I have discussed it with And I expect a large and emotional crowd
