Here’s an update from Greyhawk on the ongoing battle to save Fran O’Brien’s, the D.C. restaurant that holds weekly free steak dinners for wounded soldiers.
A new charity is in the works to preserve the tradition (via WaPo):
The owners of Fran O’Brien’s Stadium Steakhouse in Northwest Washington have created a charity to help fund the Friday night steak dinners they hold for wounded soldiers from Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
The restaurant’s lease at the Capital Hilton, at 16th and L streets NW, expires May 1.
The dinners have become an institution among the soldiers recovering from severe injuries at the medical center. The gatherings act as a support group for the veterans, and many fear their end.
Organizers and veterans are trying to find a place to keep the dinners going while the restaurant’s owners look for a place to reopen. Donations can be sent to: Aleethia Foundation Inc., C/O Fran O’Brien’s Steakhouse, 1001 16th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20036.
