'Tis the Season for Giving
A lot has been said about the accident that injured two workers from Bar Crudo and caused the fatality of a third.
Those of you that keep up with this blog know that my heart and soul belong to the restaurants of this city. I am a restaurant whore not only because I love dining at restaurants, but also because I love the people who work in them.
Bar Crudo is a place I have adored since their opening because in addition to incredible food, their staff is kind, dear and wonderful at their jobs.
I have been positively sick over the events of last week. Because of my show, I cannot attend the benefit they are having on Sunday (but you should). So instead, while at my show last night, I sent Jon armed with a check to try and help offset some of the financial burden of this tragic event. We decided on giving them half of Jon's holiday bonus (or 10x my holiday bonus depending on how you look at it), and I honestly can't think of a better way to spend that money.
Catherine has mentioned that these people have no health insurance (and extensive injuries) and their workers lost a week of pay due to this tragedy. Even if you can't afford to donate, just go and have a meal there. Show your support in any way you can.
Bar Crudo, we are here for you.
