Editorial Review

As the holidays approach, the number of charity events begins to rise. Tonight at Eyebar, the seventh annual Juntos Damos Mas Food Drive offers free admission and happy hour appetizers if you bring two cans of non-perishable food for Mary's Center, a charity that helps pregnant women and new mothers in predominantly Latino areas of the city. (Organizers also will take a $10 donation in lieu of food.) A percentage of happy hour drink sales will be donated to charity. Cuba de Ayers restaurant provide complimentary appetizers. Send an e-mail to rsvp@latinvip.com so the sponsors -- the Hispanic National Bar Association, the Hispanic Lobbyists Association, the Hispanic Heritage Foundation and others -- can provide enough food for everyone. The party runs from 5:30 to 9; afterward, DJ Geometrix spins in the recently renovated lounge.
