Drink for a Good Cause

My friend Katie Burnett just alerted me to a cause I can really get behind:

There are several bars in town rallying together to raise money to help their friends back east whose bars were heavily damaged in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. It was just a few days ago that they were all together in Portland for Portland Cocktail Week, so the bartenders in Portland and Seattle are working tirelessly to raise funds for the United States Bartenders' Guild New York Chapter, which is heading up the charge in that city.

The bars below are donating all the funds from one or more cocktails to the USBGNY this weekend to help the relief efforts:

Teardrop Lounge
Park Kitchen
Rum Club

Rob Roy
Liberty Bar

If you can't make it in for a drink, please consider making a donation directly to the USBGNY. Please send checks payable to USBGNY to this address:

Hal Wolin
80 2nd Street
Brooklyn NY 11231
