Being a do-gooder can be tough. "Not everyone can carry the weight of the world," as REM sang in "Talk About the Passion."
Most of us have no trouble eating, however, and now you can eat for a good cause.
United Way is holding a series of "Dine Out for United Way of Erie County" events at restaurants that have each pledged a portion of that day's sales for United Way. I missed the first few events, but here are the remaining ones:
TODAY (Oct. 17): Crush Wine Bar.
MONDAY (Oct. 22): Mekong Vietnamese restaurant.
WEDNESDAY (Oct. 24): Berardi's Family Kitchen.
OCT. 30 (Tuesday): Angry Bull Steakhouse.
OCT. 31 (Wednesday): Perkins Restaurant and Bakery.
