Sometimes I Use My Powers for Evil

And sometimes I use them for good.

My Mesh editor, Brian, is headed to Louisiana to help rebuild homes that were destroyed during Katrina (Remember that? Yeah...our government doesn't seem to...). He's growing a super sweet mustache as a fundraising effort. To help him out, go here.

Now here is some cool shit right here. I ate at Just For You (this was one of the first reviews I ever wrote and the writing kind of sucks, by the way) on Monday, and saw the super rad-o-licious Arienne, who owns that joint. Now if you know Arienne, and Just for You, then you know that she spent some time in Louisiana and has been no fewer than THREE times to help rebuild since the hurricane. I heart her big time. We got to chatting and I mentioned Brian's dealio.

She asked me to send her the link.

I did.

She donated.

$500.

I love her even more than I already did.

So now, everyone, please go eat there. PLEEEEEEEASE. Besides the fact that it's so fucking tasty (and it's the only place that a certain Fred will eat breakfast anymore), your money becomes their money which is obviously going to do good things.

Yay Arienne! Yay Brian! Yay Me!

xoxo

Hey Joy thanks again so much. You are definitely the raddest. Please heed Joy's advice and go to Just For You! I will now be going there non-stop, so say hello if you see a guy with a gnarly looking 'stache. Can't wait to meet Arienne, my new favorite person in the world!

Just for You is sooo good. Seriously the best beignets outside of New Orleans (actually, they are the only beignets I've ever had outside of New Orleans). But the real attraction here? They make the best f'ing fish tacos! Seriously, I go there once a week to get my fix on.
