From the official site:
As members of the Williamsburg community, most of us came out unscathed by last week’s Hurricane Sandy. If anything, businesses saw a boom from this disaster, and many of us would like to pay it forward.
This Thursday, November 8th, we will be holding Dine Out Williamsburg for Sandy Relief. All restaurants, bars, and businesses need to do to participate is pledge 10-20% of gross sales that night to the Red Cross’ Sandy relief efforts. All diners have to do is dine, drink, and spend money at one (or many!) participating businesses.
All restaurants/bars/retail businesses in the North Brooklyn are welcome to join — the more the merrier. Please email email@example.com for more details.
