Eat (and Drink) for Books – Support the Library – Thursday July 26, 2012

Updated – Sunday 7/15/12 – Ca’ Mea Ristorante Joins the List

What could be better than eating and drinking in some of the finest restaurants in Hudson, New York?  Especially knowing that a part of your meal will help fund the programs and operations of the Hudson Area Library.

Many local dining establishments will be participating in this year’s Eat For Books on Thursday, July 26th.  Here’s how it works:  you eat and drink in any participating restaurant on July 26th and a portion of what you spend there will be donated to the Library.  It couldn’t be easier.

In prior years, Eat For Books had been held only at Mexican Radio.  Owner Mark Young thought that perhaps other eateries would want to contribute, too.  And he was right, thus initiating this year’s city-wide support.

“We have reached out to almost every eatery in Hudson to contribute to Eat for Books and response has been amazing,” stated Young.  “Makes me proud to be a part of this city and also in the food and hospitality industry.  These are very giving folks.”

There is a restaurant for every taste and time of day participating in Eat for Books.  Just look for the balloons hung outside the door and mention that you are there to “Eat For Books” at these fine establishments listed below.
