Restaurant’s Nationwide Offer These Pink Colored Foods For A Good Cause

October may be designated for Halloween and an existential crisis because you are realizing that the year is basically over, BUT more importantly than both of those factors is: breast cancer awareness.

Throughout October, restaurants around the nation are incorporating pink-themed food and drinks, donating those proceeds to breast cancer foundations. Here are some spots to eat and drink pink to support breast cancer awareness.

 

TAO

A giant, pink fortune cookie (hopefully with a big and promising fortune inside), is available at TAO’s several locations in: Los Angeles, Chicago, Las Vegas, and New York City (Uptown and Downtown). Enjoy the traditional taste of a fortune cookie, with a twist of white and dark chocolate mousse inside.

LAVO

LAVO, in New York and Las Vegas, have a sweet pairing of an Oreo Zeppole (a deep fried Oreo) with a Strawberry Milkshake. LAVO is a part of the TAO Group’s month-long Tao Cares’ program. For all of October, each pink dessert sold — including the giant fortune cookie — will contribute 10% of that sale to American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
