I don't know if this happens in other cities, but Tuesday in St. Louis is "Dine Out" night, in which participating restaurants donate at least 25% of their proceeds from that day to World AIDS. It's a great opportunity to not only contribute to the cause, but to find some great local spots that otherwise are "under the radar," so to speak.
If this isn't in other cities, then by golly, someone should start it! And if it is, then I encourage all of you to go out and stuff yourselves!
