After Harvey hit Texas and Louisiana last week — killing an estimated 50 people, displacing more than one million Americans and damaging some 200,000 homes — New Yorkers sought ways to help those in need.
They donated money to relief organizations like the American Red Cross and to area food banks; they donated supplies like nonperishable food, water, flash lights; and they donated blood.
Now, New Yorkers can come together over drinks and food for comfort and charity. Restaurants and bars around the city are offering special items on their menus and donating proceeds from those cocktails and dishes to organizations involved in Harvey relief efforts.
What to drink
A glass of Hope After the Storm
Head to one of Merchant Hospitality’s restaurants or bars, like Industry Kitchen (70 South St.) or Watermark Bar (Pier 15, 78 South St.), on Thursday, Sept. 7 for a $15 limited-release cocktail made with Texan vodka. All proceeds from sales of Hope After the Storm — a mix of Amaro Averna, lemon juice, orgeat, yellow chartreuse, Angostura bitters, simple syrup, and Tito’s Handmade Vodka — will go to the Red Cross’ work in the areas affected by Harvey.
