As autumn leaves begin to drop on once-green lawns, a line-up of fall food events also is unfolding. Among the culinary delights in the coming weeks are:
Ice cream was a delicacy in those years. “Remember, there was no refrigeration,” said Richard Kozbial, a member of the Alliance. “So ice cream was a dessert for the aristocracy.”
To attend, call Irene Sydlowski at 535-5850. Cost is $20. Deadline for reservations is Wednesday.
There is an additional fee for the picnic dinner.
The National Restaurant Association has designated Thursday as Dine for America Day. Members of the Northwest Ohio Restaurant Association will join with participating restaurants around the country in donating a portion of the day's sales or sale of a particular menu item to help with relief efforts. This includes funds for immediate aid and future scholarships for families and victims of the Sept. 11 disaster.
There is a variety of participation from many restaurants. Some of the offers are 100 percent of food sales, $1 for every burger, 50 cents for every egg roll, and more. Participating restaurants will have signs signifying they are part of this fund-raiser.
Some of the restaurants are contributing to Windows of Hope Family Relief fund-raiser. This will benefit the nearly 80 employees of Windows on the World who perished in the terrorist attack. The restaurant was located in one of the World Trade Center towers. Also benefiting will be victims who worked in the other restaurants in the World Trade Center complex.
Others will contribute to the New York Restaurants Employee Disaster Fund.
