Looking for an excuse to try the lobster roll and pug burger at Hungry Cat? Now you have a certifiably altruisitc motive for your gluttony. Tomorrow is the 13th Annual Dine Out Los Angeles, a one-day event where participating Los Angeles area restaurants will donate 20% or more of their day's proceeds to Aid For AIDS, a charity that works to improve the quality of life for people who have HIV/AIDS in developing countries or who are immigrants to the U.S.
How about an order of brisket tacos and a margarita at Marix? Or maybe a plate of savory couscouse and a side of roasted carrot salad at Chameu? Not enough for you? You could start out with Eggs Benedict at Hugo's, head to Cha Cha Cha for a Jamaican Jerk Chicken Pizza at lunch, slip over to Masa for a late afternoon chocolate croissant and cup of coffee, then wash it all down with a dinner of brews and beef at the Bonaventure Brewing Company.
A complete list of restaurants is available on the Dine Out LA Web site. Remember, the more you eat, the more they donate.
