Next Wednesday, April 23rd from 6pm to 9pm, the University District Food Bank will be playing guest bartender for 50 North Restaurant,in an effort to raise a little extra cash.

50 North is located at 5001 25th Ave NE #100 (at Northcut Landing), with free garage parking.  It’s a family-friendly restaurant and serves dinner until 9pm on weeknights with the bar closing down at 10pm.

Next Wednesday, 10% of all drink sales will be donated to the Food Bank.  Receipts will also give an opportunity to donate extra amounts to the Food Bank on your credit/debit card, and there will be tip jars around the bar collecting also.  Finally, 50 North is donating $1 to the University Food Back for every “LIKE” they receive on Facebook today through the event night, so click through and give them a like!



5 Corner Market & other restaurants join in Japan fundraising effort

If you haven’t been to 5 Corner Market in Ballard, it’s amazing.  No, really.  It has a craft beer selection too long to pick from, paired with really top-notch food that Gordon Ramsey would be impressed with.

Now, 5 Corner Market is joining in the fundraising efforts for Japan.  Dine on Wednesday, April 6th, and 10% of the sales will go directly to victims of the earthquake and tsunami.

This is part of a local fundraising movement called Red White Unite – on April 6th, around 40 Seattle restaurants are doing the same – donating 10% of their profits to the Japan fundraising effort.  Local participating restaurants include Ray’s Boathouse, 50 North, and Kisaku Sushi.  For a complete list of all the restaurants participating, visit the full Web site here.

All money raised in this effort will be donated through Peace Winds America.
