Dining Out For Life 2013

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Dining Out For Life, a national annual fundraising event, returns to El Paso on Thursday, April 25, after a brief hiatus. Houston and El Paso are the only Texas cities participating this year. Throughout the day, more than 20 local restaurants will donate 25-50% of their proceeds to El Paso’s International AIDS Empowerment organization.
This nonprofit’s mission is to improve the quality of life for people living with HIV/AIDS and to reduce the incidence of new infections through education, outreach and testing. For more info and how you can help, visit internationalaids.org.

In honor of this charitable event, What’s Up has asked me to profile 3 participating restaurants. You can read it here. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram(@bettyfemme), Twitter(@epvegsnob) or Facebook (elpasovegsnob), where I’ve been posting pics of dishes from participating restaurants.

Visit diningoutforlife.com to find out if your city is participating.

Dine during these mealtimes at the restaurants listed below on April 25. Pretty much all of them are vegan/vegetarian friendly. The most veg friendly places are Eloise, Magic Bistro, Opus World Bistro, Ripe Eatery and Sam’s Chinese Restaurant. All restaurants are donating 25% except for Red Mountain Bistro. They are graciously donating 50%! Eloise and Magic Bistro normally serve food only during lunch hours, but both will be extending their lunch menus into the dinner hours for this night.dofl2013.jpg
