Tomorrow, Tuesday, May 8th, at least 20 bars and restaurants around the city will be donating a portion of their proceeds to the Capitol Hill Community Foundation, which will be using the funds to help the merchants and producers who depended on Eastern Market for their livelihoods.
Eastern Market Rescue has the list of participating establishments along with the hours during which they’re participating (some are doing a happy hour, some are designating the whole day) AND, my personal favorite, the actual percentage being donated. EMR has been recommending a 5% donation, but some places are going above and beyond, and you can reward that generosity if you so choose. There’s also a flyer you can use to ask your favorite establishment to participate.
