We just heard about tonight’s happening at the Hamlet on Lake in Pasadena, and it sounds like a whole lot of fun. Everyone’s favorite people right now, the Pasadena firefighters, are joining with our equally valued police offers to take over as the waitstaff at the Hamlet. They’ll be competing for tips, and then donating all tips to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. On top of that, Hamlet is donating 15% of the till that night to the food bank, which supplies many Pasadena-area nonprofits with food.
And yes, many of the firefighters will be working in their “turnout” gear, complete with yellow pants and suspenders.
If you’ve got preschoolers or elementary-school kids and no plans for dinner, you don’t want to miss this one.
