BeCAUSE We Said So

Charity happy hour at LIMA


You brake for birds. You brake (less quickly) for politicians. You recycle, smile at strangers and call your mother on Sundays.

But what have all those karma-creating deeds done for you LATELY?

Yeah. Think about it.

Reward yourself for doing good, with booze, food and well -- more doing good. Tomorrow night, LIMA Restaurant (1401 K St. N.W.) hosts the first installment of Just BeCAUSE, a charity happy hour series to benefit Ready, Willing and Working.

The nonprofit aims to break the cycles of homelessness, welfare and criminal recidivism, and help participants reach permanent self-sufficiency. The group's mission statement? "We believe that every human being has the potential to be a productive, contributing member of society." Wow, we really can't argue with that one.

You can expect a few D.C. notables to attend this charity event (5-10 p.m.), including Makeda Saggau-Sackey (The Glamazon Diaries) and Katherine Kennedy (of The CW's upcoming "Blonde Charity Mafia").

For a minimum suggested donation of $10 at the door, you'll enjoy a night of complimentary passed hors d'eouvres and drink specials ($5 spirits, $5 wines and $4 beers) -- and, of course, you'll also be benefiting Ready, Willing & Working.

Just a warning: The food vanishes at 7 p.m., so arrive early if you need to coat your stomach pre-booze.

Hey, you've earned it.
