Just in from the “let them eat cake” department, Venice adjacent Café Del Rey emailed us that they have partnered with Share Our Strength’s Great American Dine Out presented by American Express from September 21-28, 2008 to give 2% of all of their dessert sales to said charity. That’s right … they are going to help stamp out childrens’ hunger with 2% donated from their dessert menu.
YoVenice is all about charities but this is just a big bunch of BS and TOTALLY INSULTING to us. For example .. let’s say Keri and I bicycle over there for dinner …
For starters we will get:
dungeness crab cake: $17
truffle pizza $26
For our main we will try:
alaskan halibut $34
filet mignon $38
We like the vino .. so add $40 for a bottle of sumthin’ sumthin’.
Dessert: (Most all of the desserts are 10 bucks)
black & blueberry shortcake $10
molten chocolate cake $10
Anywho .. all added up .. Café Del Rey is taking in $175 … with tip make it $208.25 … and for all that helping Café Del Rey out .. they will give 2% of $20 bucks to help starving children.
Final score for Café Del Rey’s charity drive:
Café Del Rey: $208.25 + tax
Starving Kids: $ .40 cents
Gimme a slice of BS with that order Café Del Rey, umK thx.
