Three cheers for Alameda’s La Pinata Mexican Restaurant on Park Street.
Today, the restaurant planned to give part of its earnings to the Red Cross’ Haiti Relief Effort to help victims of that island’s recent earthquake.
The traffic at La Pinata today, Monday, wasn’t as busy as it can be on Fridays and Saturday. But, hopefully, the steady crowd was enough for the restaurant to be able to make a generous contribution.
The Guzman family know how to treat its local and global communities right, often donating funds, food and drink for charities.
Just a few months ago, for instance, the owners shared a large supply of margaritas to the Dance for the Cure breast-cancer benefit.
