You like to donate. You like to eat. Here are two events where you can do both. Proceeds benefit the Pierce County AIDS Foundation and victims of the Oso mudslide.

Dining Out For Life: Dine out Thursday (April 24, 2014) at a participating restaurant and that restaurant (or bar or taproom) will donate 25 percent of the check to the Pierce County AIDS Foundation. Participants in the Tacoma-Olympia area can be found at this website.

Oso dinner at Duke’s Seafood House: Owner Duke Moscrip and chef Bill Ranniger have organized a dinner at Duke’s where 100 percent of proceeds will go to victims of the Oso mudslide. Tuesday’s dinner (April 29) will be at the Ruston Duke’s. A dinner will be held Wednesday (April 30) at the Alki location. See the menu below. Cost of the dinner is $75 per person. Contact information here.

Speaking of Duke’s, have you been paying attention to the Ruston waterfront’s menu? The restaurant has made itself over as a sustainable fish destination, which earned the restaurant an award of 4.5 forks at fish2fork. All the fish served at Duke’s is described as sustainable, and wild. Check out what they’re doing even on the turf part of the menu. Read more here.

- Trumer Pils as a welcome beer to get you started
