Just got this email from the civic-minded "Capitol Hill Community Foundation" (www.capitolhillcommunityfoundation.org). Sounds like a good way to get people involved in bringing back the beloved Eastern Market:

On Tuesday May 8th, establishments throughout the District are showing their support for the merchants of Eastern Market, and donating a portion of the night's proceeds to the Capitol Hill Community Foundation. Participate! Ask your favorite bars to join, and make sure to come out on Tuesday night.

Participating Venues So Far

Hawk and Dove 5% donated to Capitol Hill Community Foundation 7-10PM

Science Club 5% donated to Capitol Hill Community Foundation 7-10PM

What you can do to help

This is really simple-- we're not an organization, just a bunch of passionate DC citizens who want to make sure that Eastern Market retains its historic presence in the district. Right now, what you can do, tonight is go to your favorite bar, and ask them if they will participate in a city-wide happy hour on Tuesday to benefit the Capitol Hill Community Foundation's 'Eastern Market Keep it Going' fund.

We're asking that bars give 5% of their profits to the fund. That's a recommendation-- but if they want to give more or less they can. It will all be listed here once it is confirmed.

Day 1: Getting Started

We've done a great job getting started. Originally out of a Facebook Group, the Eastern Market Rescue fundraiser project is off to a great start. There are several bars participating, and some waiting on phone calls for participation. Keep talking to people and bringing people on board. We'll reach critical mass soon!

Got questions? Got a bar to add to the list? Want to participate? EMail Clay Johnson (cjoh@yahoo.com)
