"A statement of inclusion and love for community"

"All In Service DC" is "a team of people from the hospitality community, service workers, and restaurateurs, who are making a statement of inclusion and love for community. As a service industry - like a gracious host - we welcome all." Participating restaurants will donate a share of the profits that they make during Inauguration Weekend (when business will no doubt be very good) to several service organizations that provide food, shelter, and medical care for those that need it. Recipients of their aid are very likely to lose a variety of lifeline services from the policies of the incoming administration.

From the "All In Service DC" website:


"ALL IN SERVICE DC celebrates DC’s diversity by giving back to local organizations that keep our community thriving. 
"This inauguration weekend, eat and drink in DC for good.

"The events of the inauguration present a vital opportunity to serve our nation’s capital by creating inclusive spaces, in service not only to our guests, but also to our community. These are the fundamentals of hospitality, and it is in this spirit that we invite you to join us."
Participants choose which of several helping organizations to donate to. The list appears to be growing as the idea takes hold, though of course its impact is as yet unknown.
