Temptation Tuesday - Dining For A Cause

This week is Inman Park Restaurant Week here in Atlanta. It began yesterday, March 28 and ends, Sunday, April 3. I began participating a couple of years ago year and am committed to continuing. There are 12 restaurants participating.

They are:

$15 Menu
Pure Taqueria
The Albert
North Highland Pub
Victory Sandwich Bar

$25 Menu
Parish Food & Goods
Park's Edge
Sotto Sotto
Fritti also has a $25 menu (which I selected from tonight)

$35 Menu
Kevin Rathbun Steak

This week, you can purchase a $1 raffle ticket to support Open Hand Atlanta and enter to win an hor d'ouerves, beer and wine party at one of my favorite restaurants, Kevin Rathbun Steak. There will be three winners and each winner can bring 10 friends and the menu will consist of tastes from each participating Inman Park restaurant. The winner will be announced at the end of Restaurant Week.

There's a really simple reason for asking you to support Inman Park Restaurant and Open Hand Atlanta and it's because of the following statements from Open Hand Atlanta:

Our Mission, Vision, Purpose, Core Values & Guiding Principles

Open Hand helps people prevent or better manage chronic disease through
Comprehensive Nutrition Care, which combines home-delivered meals and nutrition education as a means to reinforce the connection between informed
food choices and improved quality of life.

Open Hand seeks to eliminate disability and untimely death due to nutrition-sensitive chronic disease.

To serve our community by empowering people to live healthier, more productive lives.

Core Values
We value success and our passion for winning through trust, transparent leadership and our commitment to diversity.

Guiding Principles
Our guiding principles that frame all decision-making are based on our purpose, these values and a mutual respect for each individual’s contribution to the fulfillment of our mission.

Tonight, I joined a few foodie friends for dinner at Fritti and enjoyed a wonderful meal while supporting a charity that I believe in. Please understand, it's about much more than winning a raffle, it's about raising awareness about organizations that exist for the good of others.

Can I tempt you to participate in Inman Park Restaurant Week or a Restaurant Week in your city while giving a charity your support?

Have a great evening!
