Eat Dinner, Help Fight Racial Prejudice

If anyone managed to forget that bigotry is alive and well in this country, then last week's news that a Louisiana justice of the peace refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple earlier this month provided a stark reminder. It also provided timely context for the Hapa Kitchen's upcoming dinner to benefit the Loving Day Project, an organization that fights racial prejudice. The Hapa crew -- whose name comes from the Hawaiian term for a person of mixed race -- will cook a six-course Izakaya-inspired menu featuring local produce and organic, sustainably raised meats this Saturday, October 24. They've invited the Louisiana couple to dine with them; everyone else can find tickets, which cost $75, here.
