Dining Out For Life is an annual nationwide dining fundraising event raising money for AIDS service organizations. DC’s event supports Food and Friends, the only DC charity providing daily, home-delivered, specialized meals, groceries and nutrition counseling to individuals who are battling HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses. Astrid and I are so excited that this year we don’t have to leave the neighborhood to dine at a participating restaurant. Hats off to Steel Plate has and Busboys and Poets for signing up and donating 25% and 35% of their sales for the night respectively.
The event, now in its 19th year, will take place Thursday, April 23rd, and we encourage everyone to go out and support! Steel Plate is located at 3523 12th Street NE and Busboys and Poets is located at 625 Monroe Street NE.
