Seeking Balance One Tuesday at a Time

A Donation Only Restaurant Where All are Welcome

Drexell and Honeybees is a little restaurant in Alabama. There are no prices but there’s a private area where people can go in and put their donation in a box, or not. Take a look at their website and be sure to scroll down and watch the video. https://www.drexellandhoneybees.com/

In the Nick of Time

On August 8th, California police officer Erica Urrea pulled a 66 year old man from his wheelchair which was stuck on the railroad tracks right before the train came. Here’s good news from the officer’s body camera:

Dancing in the Rain

Anthony Mmesoma Madu, an 11 year old from Nigeria, recently received a scholarship after the video of him dancing in the rain outside his ballet school went viral. He has studied at The Leap of Dance Academy in Lagos, Nigeria where his ballet teacher, Daniel Ajala, offers free classes to children who cannot afford to pay.

I apologize if you’re having trouble with the “like” button. The WP happiness engineer suspects it’s due to my theme being “retired.” Maybe it’s time for a new theme!

#WATWB : A Place at the Table

A Place at the Table is a restaurant in Raleigh, North Carolina where customers pay what they can. 27-year-old Maggie Kane started the restaurant after she graduated from college. Eighty percent of the customers pay the suggested price. Some pay more, some pay less, and some volunteer for their meal. A Place at the Table will soon be celebrating its one year anniversary and has given away almost 7,000 meals.

 

Another pay-what-you-can cafe is located in Boone, NC. The F.A.R.M. Cafe is a non-profit restaurant. You can learn more here: http://farmcafe.org/index.html . Since I have family in Boone, I hope to visit the F.A.R.M. Cafe sometime in 2019. Maybe some day every city and town will have a pay-what-you-can restaurant.
