Dallas Bars, Restaurants Chipping In For Harvey Relief Efforts

North Texas venues are helping raise money and gather supplies for evacuees and victims of the hurricane in southeast Texas.
By |

As Harvey continues to flood Houston and much of southeast Texas, we’re just beginning to reckon with the enormous scale of a disaster that has displaced thousands and caused untold damage to people’s homes and livelihoods. North Texans are among the many donating time and money to relief efforts across the state. There are plenty of ways you can help.

A number of Dallas bars, restaurants, and venues are also contributing to the response. We’ve compiled a list, and will keep adding to it throughout the week. Please leave any suggestions in the comments, or email [email protected].

  • Cane Rosso in Deep Ellum is donating all of its sales from 5 to 10 p.m. tonight (Tuesday, Aug. 29) to organizations helping respond to Harvey.
  • Both Double Wide and Single Wide will be donating all of their sales on Thursday, Aug. 31, to flood relief efforts.
  • Central Track is putting together a one-night campaign, set for Sept. 6, that will enlist Dallas bars and restaurants to contribute 20 percent of their sales on that day to a fund for Trusted World, which is coordinating Harvey relief efforts in North Texas. Venues that have signed on to #DTX4HTX so far include Black Swan, City Tavern, Easy Slider, Independent Bar + Kitchen, The Nines, Stirr, and Off The Record. That list has swelled to more than 70; follow along here.
  • At Nora on Lowest Greenville, 25 percent of sales today (Tuesday, Aug. 29) will go toward the Red Cross.
  • The Free Play Arcade in Richardson is donating all of its admission proceeds from 7 p.m. to close on Wednesday, Aug. 30, to food banks in southeast Texas.
  • A 4 to 6 p.m. happy hour at Happiest Hour on Wednesday, Aug. 30 will send some of its proceeds to Harvey relief efforts.
  • Bring diapers to any Emporium Pies location, and the pie purveyors will ensure they are delivered to the right place.
  • If you can’t make it to the Trusted World drop-off location in Addison, Sandwich Hag in the Cedars will take donations of needed items (clothing, toiletries, etc.) and make sure they get to the right place.
  • The Monkey King Noodle Co. outposts in Deep Ellum and Carrollton are doing the same, taking donations of needed items to the Trusted World distribution location.
  • Bring a case of bottled water to the Kate Weiser Chocolate locations at NorthPark or in Trinity Groves through Friday afternoon, and get a two-piece box of chocolates. Kate Weiser Chocolate will then take the bottled water to the appropriate distribution center for evacuees in Dallas.
  • On Thursday, Aug. 31, from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., 20 percent of sales at Citizen will go toward Harvey relief efforts. Same goes at Nikkei on Friday, Sept. 1, from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
