From burgers to bake sales, here are some ways you can help out Sandy's victims -- and your belly.
Belgian beers and poutine: Library Ale House will be pairing of beers from the Vanburg and DeWulf portfolio with various international incarnations of poutine -- the Canadian delicacy that combines fries, gravy, and cheese curd on one joyous plate. The craft brew line-up includes Vintage Scaldis Noel paired with French poutine, Dupont Monk's Stout paired with Mexican poutine, Castelain Biere de Garde paired with Asian poutine, Scaldis Peche Mel paired with Moroccan poutine, and Dupont Avec Les Bons Voeux paired with Indian poutine. The event will be going on all day long at the Santa Monica bar, and 15% of all the sales go to Sandy relief. Check their site for more details.

Community tea party and bake sale: Farid Zadi and Susan Park over at the Spanish Fly are hosting a tea tasting and bake sale to benefit the victims of the hurricane. The event will take place on Sunday from noon-5:00 p.m., with the bake sale running throughout three different tea sittings, each of which have a unique theme. The first will focus on Asian teas from Korea, China, and Japan. The second round of sips will focus on the process of sourcing leaves. And the third will be a more formal chef's table with a tea-inspired menu and cocktail pairing. There are suggested donations of $30-$50 for each seating, of which the profits will go to Sandy victims. You can make your reservations by emailing the organizers.

Burgs and sushi for Sandy victims: Burger Lounge will donate 100% of proceeds of their burger sales from the Los Angeles Burger Lounge locations in West Hollywood and Beverly Hills to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund supporting the affected communities on the East Coast through this Sunday. Additionally, during the entire month of November, Koi will donate 100% of the proceeds from their yellowtail carpaccio and Koi fusion shots to the American Red Cross through Koi’s charitable foundation, Just a Little.
