Freeze Relief

As you may recall, it actually dropped below freezing here in California a few weeks ago. That was bad news for local farmers, many of whom lost their entire crops. In response, some of L.A.'s finest restaurants have gotten together for Freeze Relief, a benefit for small local farmers affected by the freeze. Chefs are designing special menus incorporating as much local produce as they can and donating 100% of the profits to the farmers. Local farmers will even be present at a few of the restaurants.

Here's a list of the restaurants participating:
If you can't get excited about a few of those places (Angeli! Lucques! AO Freekin' C!) then you don't like eating. If you've got the money (most of the events are in the $40-60 per person range), I hope you'll consider heading to one of the meals. Most of the events are this Sunday, February 11, but a few are later in the week.
