Dining Out For Life 2013

This Thursday night is the perfect night to go out to eat.  Each year over 180 restaurants in Minnesota participate in Dining Out For Life, this year it is on Thursday, April 25th.  A percentage of proceeds from participating restaurants go to the Aliveness Project and RAAN that provide support for those living with HIV/AIDS.

It just makes sense to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner out on Thursday. Not only do you get to eat great food, but you get to give as well.

Visit the website to see which restaurants are participating and at what level: HERE

Here are a few restaurants that I suggest that you should visit this Thursday:

  • The Saloon – 100% of both Lunch and Dinner will be donated. Located in downtown Minneapolis, The Saloon is known for its billboard of gorgeous men.
  • Rustica Bakery– 40% of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Rustica is one of my favorite spots in Uptown. You can check out my recent review HERE.
  • Acqua– 35% of dinner. This is one of my favorite hidden gems. Acqua just opened a new restaurant in Forest Lake. Read my review HERE. See photo above.
  • Blackbird Cafe– 35% of breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  • George and The Dragon– 35% of lunch and dinner.
  • Hazels Northeast– 35% of breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  • Herkimer– 35% of dinner. This brew-pub in Uptown is a great place to get together with groups. Good options for all types of eaters. Get together a group of friends and head out there on Thursday night.
  • Moto-i – 35% of dinner. A sleek Uptown hotspot with a great variety of items on the menu. Try the ramen or the bibimbap Hopefully, the weather will be nice enough that people will get to enjoy the patio.
  • Republic– 35% of lunch and dinner. I have been meaning to try this place.
  • Spill the Wine– 35% of lunch and dinner. Now in a new location, this is one of my favorite places to go on a date.

If you are in Duluth, Sir Ben’s is giving 35% of both lunch and dinner.

I would highly suggest that you make a reservation at participating restaurants since it can get very busy!

because giving back is easy and delicious
