The Pug (1234 H Street NE) is hosting a fundraiser tonight starting at 8pm for Greater DC Diaper Bank. A $20 donation gets you open drafts until the keg from DC Brau is kicked. Greater DC Diaper Bank (formerly known as as DC Diaper Bank) "provides diapers to social service organizations that are already helping families in need through comprehensive programs and services. Diapers act as a 'gateway' to introduce hard to reach families to social services and other vital resources." If you can't make the fundraiser, or just want to do more, you can also donate time, money, or supplies directly to Greater DC Diaper Bank. Those who do head down to tonight's event can take advantage of the opportunity to sample the new food offerings at the Pug.
The Pug rolled out their new food menu last night featuring bar snacks by upstairs neighbor Toki Underground. Bar snacks range in price from $4 for the pickles plate to $9 for the steamed buns with either fried chicken or cauliflower, and are available Monday to Saturday 5–10pm.
