From The Editor: Wine Me, Dine Me… For A Good Cause
I’ve always been of the mindset that in order to make a better world, we all need to do what we can to make that dream a reality. Whether it’s volunteering, reaching out to those in need, or donating needed funds, we all need to chip in to make manifest a better tomorrow for everyone.
On April 26, you can help that effort with a meal. Once again, Lavender is highlighting the fine work of The Aliveness Project, a Minneapolis-based HIV/AIDS nonprofit dedicated to helping those afflicted with the disease. April 26 will mark this year’s installment of The Aliveness Project’s Dining Out For Life event, where dozens of Twin Cities restaurants will donate some or all of that day’s profits to the nonprofit to help in the fight against AIDS.
As such, Lavender is once again featuring a Dining Out For Life guide, highlighting a number of the local establishments that will donate proceeds to the project. It’s a beautiful day for a beautiful cause, so I encourage all of you to head out to these great restaurants and help make a difference.
Furthermore, our 2018 Dine & Drink issue features a handy Best New Restaurants of 2018 guide, as well as a special “Seven Breweries in Seven Days” guide crafted and lovingly researched by yours truly.
And don’t forget! You have until April 30 to enter yourself for a chance to win Lavender’s “Pride Cover and a Cruise” Contest! All you have to do is send us a one-minute video of yourself, telling us why you’d be the best choice to grace our June 7 Pride issue, as well as winning a cruise trip for two from Celebrity Cruises! Send your videos to [email protected], and visit our Facebook page or website for official rules! Don’t miss out on a chance of a lifetime!
