I heard that on Andrew Z in the Morning. Very cool idea, and lots of local restaurants are participating!

Very cool. Community Shares (http://www.communitysharesnwohio.org/) does this sort of thing several times a year and I've always been a fan. Try to choose local, people!

Planning to get Andrew Z's on Thursday, but I'm curious where is the Village Idiot? I've heard it mentioned here several times and would like to try it out.

Are all donations from these restaurants going to the Red Cross?

Thats how the article made it sound. Regardless of how you feel about them right now it should not make you not do this if you were planning on it.
