Just a repeat from last week: there are two fundraisers in Atlanta this week for victims of the earthquake in Abruzzo. The details are below -- I think I will be going to Fritti in Inman Park tomorrow to help out the earthquake victims and see how the new pizzaiolo from Naples stacks up!

1. U RESTAURANT GROUP BENEFIT FOR EARTHQUAKE RELIEF
Please join us in the effort to raise funds for the people affected by the earthquake. On Tuesday, April 21st, U Restaurants will host the Dine Out for Earthquake Relief.
This is a great pledge of Riccardo Ullio, as all profits from dinner at Sotto Sotto, Fritti, Cuerno and Beleza will go to provide relief for the victims through the International Red Cross.
