I have noticed that the media, the American news media sources in particular, have been covering the issue less and less, but the relief effort in Burma is far from over, and in some ways just beginning. The Burmese government is finally letting aid workers into the country, and hopefully into Irrawaddy Delta, where the cyclone did some of the worst damage. On Wednesday, May 28, 2008, Cafe Meze is sponsoring a happy hour to benefit the victims of Cyclone Nargis. A $15 donation will get you the following:
One complimentary beer or wine
Raffle entry to win door prizes
$4 beer and $5 wine drink specials (all night long)
Yes, normally, 15 bucks for one drink and a raffle entry may not be the cheapest deal around town, but think about the warm feeling in your heart...think...feels pretty good just thinking about it, right? Plus, Cafe Meze is supposed to be really good, and now you have an excuse to check this place out.

This is a blog written by a couple of DCers, who like to drink a little, learn a little, live a lot and all without going broke. Gone Out DC contains information about events/news/happy hours that we believe are most worthy of your time in the Washington (and surrounding) area. Our friends have told us things like "wow, you know things" so we thought we would share the news with the world. We believe that having an active social life in DC doesn't necessarily mean tapping into a savings account, increasing your credit card debt, or sacrificing that potential student loan interest payment for an opera ticket, nature walk, or drink (at VERY least, you know you've thought about it).
Besides, why research when we are going to do it for you anyway?
WE HAVE A GOOGLE CALENDAR!
Stay up to date with all postings and repeating events that we don't necessarily blog about each time.
