Dining Out for Life

Thursday, April 27 is Dining Out for Life day, a benefit for Lifelong AIDS Alliance.  It’s hard to believe this is the 13th year of this event. The thing that is so nice is that you really don’t have to do anything to contribute!  Just by eating out that night, at one of the participating restaurants, you’ve taken part.  So the hardest thing you have to do is to check the list of participants before deciding where to dine that day.  And with 150+ participants (and more being added) it’s not hard to find somewhere in your neighborhood to grab a bite to eat. 
This year (maybe this was last year, too…) several places are even offering the same deal at breakfast and lunch – so if you are really motivated you can make all three of your meals that day count. 
If you want to find out specifically what the restaurant is contributing you will have to check with them directly as it’s not listed on the central site this year.  Most places donate a percentage of their sales that night and sometimes the servers donate tips, etc. 
I know that Rover’s has a special menu and wine pairing on the 27th with 30% of the proceeds being donated.  The menu sounds amazing – of course when doesn’t a Rover’s menu sound amazing? 
Smoked Salmon Tian with Fennel Cucumber Salad and a Moroccan Lemon Confit Relish
Butter Poached Alaskan Halibut with Eastern Washington Asparagus and a Sorrel Butter Sauce
Hibiscus Sorbet
Roasted Guinea Fowl with Thumbelina Carrots, Roasted Celeriac and a Morel-Lovage Sauce
Clover Honey Mousse Charlotte with Rhubarb Puree
I’d go just for the Hibiscus Sorbet! :-)
Dinner is $75 per person, excluding tax and gratuity. A flight of wine pairings to accompany each course of the “Dining Out for Life” menu is an additional $35 per person, excluding tax and gratuity.
Now that’s an example of the high-end but there is something to suit everyone – every type and price range of food can be found on the list.  So, check it out, pick a spot, invite some friends and feel good about eating!
