Dooky Chase

Fydeaux Feb 8, 2007 05:28 AM

I just ran across this in the Offbeat weekly email newsletter:

Last week, Starbucks donated $175,000 to Leah Chase to finish repair work on Dooky Chase Restaurant. The Southern Foodways Alliance got renovations started on the famed restaurant, which took on four feet of water after Hurricane Katrina. Chase plans to have the restaurant open again in April.

Giving credit where credit is due, Way to go, Starbucks!

        Anyone who helps Leah Chase get back open is OK in my book, even if they charge $40 a gallon for coffee.
