JUNE 1-10

I’ve joined forces with (RED) and meat man Pat LaFrieda for EAT (RED). DRINK (RED). SAVE LIVES., a 10-day campaign to raise funds to help deliver the first AIDS free generation in over three decades.



June marks the month AIDS was first discovered in 1981. This June, we want to #86AIDS: remove AIDS from the menu entirely. From June 1-10, each of my restaurants will offer a RED special, a percentage of the proceeds of which will be donated to (RED).


The two pills that keep you alive if you’re HIV positive, cost 40 cents a day.


Download an EAT (RED). DRINK (RED). SAVE LIVES info card here. Take one to your favorite local business owner AND tell them how they can register at www.eatdrinkred.org to join the fight against AIDS.


Here’s the kicker: Donate $10 to (RED) and be entered to win a private cooking class with yours truly. Click here to enter. Look forward to seeing you in New York!
