  • The explosion at JJ's Restaurant this week drew national attention.

Over on Fat City, Charles Ferruzza has this update to his coverage of the aftermath of the explosion at JJ's:

In addition to the local groups planning fundraising events or arranging for donation sites for the employees of JJ's Restaurant, the Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association has organized a one-day, citywide effort for Kansas City restaurants and diners to raise money. Tomorrow - Saturday, February 23 - nearly 50 area restaurants are donating 10 percent of sales to the JJ's Restaurant Fund. This fund has been set up by, and will be managed by, the Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association, according to that group's executive director, Steve Cole. He says that "all funds collected will be provided to JJ's Restaurant owner Jimmy Frantze, to help his staff convalesce." For a list of participating restaurants, click here.

So now you're definitely eating out tomorrow night.
