Nearly 80 restaurants host Dining Out for Life tonight



Although New Orleanians need more excuses to dine out just about as badly as we need more Mardi Gras bead-stuffed garbage bags in our attics, here's a great one: Tonight, 78 area restaurants participate in Dining Out for Life, a fundraising event for NO/AIDS Task Force. Eat at any participating restaurant tonight, and 25 percent of your bill benefits the nonprofit organization, which since 1983 has provided programs and services for people affected by HIV and AIDS. Waiters will have special donation envelopes on hand for diners who wish to make addition contributions - and those who give a little lagniappe to the cause will be entered (along with their waiter) to win a prize in a special drawing. For more information about the fundraising event, visit Dining Out for Life's website.
