UPDATE 02/23/17: We raised $227 for Planned Parenthood in a little under two hours. Thanks, Portland!
Given what’s going on in this country, we think you might need a big bowl of comfort. So in honor of Presidents’ Day, we are stepping away from the fryer for one night only to make a big batch of our Cincinnati chili. That’s right; fried chicken is not the only thing we’re fussy about.
To “honor” our current Commander in Grief, all proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood. Simply drop in to Kitchen Cru between 5:30-7:30p on Wednesday 2/22 for a bowl of chili or a coney (that’s a chili dog, for the uninitiated) and pay whatever you want for the food. Reservations not necessary- we will post on Facebook and Twitter if we run out. Beverages including beer, cider, and bubbly will also be available. Food and non-alcoholic drinks may be taken to go.
And to anyone who thinks we should shut up and keep politics out of our food, we politely decline your business. One half of Team Fusspot would have had no reproductive healthcare for over twenty years if not for Planned Parenthood and is at risk of losing her current insurance if the ACA is dismantled. We refuse to stand idly by while women, differently abled, LGBTQ, and people of color are targeted and attacked simply for existing. We hope that you understand, and if not, vaya con Dios.
