While one of the recommended guidelines for International Women’s Day is to direct your dollars to small women-owned businesses (or just don’t spend anything at all), we know fighting the patriarchy can be tough. Here are three restaurants and bars giving back to the women’s community, today, and every day. So drink up, eat up, and stand united.
(P.S. Belly Wine Bar and Juliet will also feature specials this evening and details can be found in our International Women’s Day explainer!)
You can drink from the Lord Hobo Glorious Pale Ale tap at Casa Verde, where they’ll hand over 100 percent of profits to Planned Parenthood for the entire month of March. Lord Hobo’s brew is hoppy, citrusy and goes down easy, so expect this good deed to be done on the regular.711 Centre St., Jamaica Plain
Brass Union bartender/manager Kristin will be donating a portion of her tips tonight to Respond, a domestic violence prevention agency in Somerville, reports Eater Boston. Be sure to drink up (we like the Green Line Extension — featuring bourbon, green chartreuse and bitters) and tip generously. Then repeat.70 Union Sq., Somerville
You can bowl-yourself-over at woman-owned Whole Heart Provisions in Allston where they’ll be donating 10 percent sales to Planned Parenthood. They’re also tempting customers willing to match their donation with a 50 gift card and very cool T-shirt — so line your wallet accordingly. (Update: Friends of the restaurant agreed to match donations— so 20 percent of sales will be heading to PP. Huzzah!)487 Cambridge St, Allston
