Community News: Charity Bartender Drag-A-Thon, Angel Azul Celebrates 20 Years, Rose Wine Dinner & More

Before we begin with our more local Community News, I wanted to mention the current human rights crisis of children being separated from their parents at our borders which is nothing short of an atrocity. These are events happening in our greater national community which are contradictory to any kind of morality I can personally imagine and flat-out shameful. I urge you to take some time to learn more and I'm including a link (via Slate) to the best round-up I found of ways you can help, be it though donating time, money, or knowledge.

Now back to our regular Community News programming:

Jersey City

  • Join burlesque performer and censorship fighter Lillian Bustle and Pet Shop for Jersey City's first ever Charity Bartender Drag-A-Thon! Held this Thursday, 6/21 beginning at 9pm, all donations will go towards the Trevor Project.
