Tomorrow (Thursday, June 21), a heartwarming shit-ton of restaurants will participate in the 13th annual Bites for Rights fundraising event, during which dining establishments pledge a portion of the day's proceeds to LGBT equality organization Basic Rights Oregon. More than 60 local bakeries, coffee shops, food carts, and restaurants are on board, spanning all Portland neighborhoods and cuisines: From Lincoln and the Big Egg in North Portland to SE's Por Que No? and the newish Slide Inn.
(In the interest of being service-y, a quick glance at the line-ups of both Bites for Rights and Portland Dining Month reveal double participation at Bar Avignon, Biwa, Davis Street Tavern, Fratelli, Lincoln, Old Wives' Tales, and the Original. Make a reservation via the Dining Month link at OpenTable and donate to two charities — BRO and the Oregon Food Bank — for simply eating.) For a complete list of participants, visit the official line-up here.
