There are some Washington DC restaurants which are planning to donate the money they make during the inauguration to anti-Trump causes.
If you’re a Trump supporter and are planning to be in DC for the inauguration, you may want to deny these restaurants your business.
NOTE: The report below and the original report at BuzzFeed claimed the restaurants were donating to anti-Trump groups. They now claim the restaurants are donating to “charity” which sounds much nicer. Don’t be fooled.

DC restaurants to donate part of Trump inauguration profits: report
A coalition of Washington, D.C., restaurants is promising to donate part of its inauguration weekend profits to charity, according to a new report.
A group of 14 restaurants is planning to make donations to various groups after Donald Trump is sworn in as president as part of an “All in Service” fundraising effort, BuzzFeed News reported Friday.
“The team is talking to another dozen businesses right now,” All In Service spokeswoman Sarah Massey told BuzzFeed. “We would love to see the entire D.C. service industry participate.”
Participating businesses can decide on a percentage of their Jan. 20 weekend profits to donate to local aid organizations.
Bourbon, one of the restaurants involved, plans on giving to Planned Parenthood.
The other picks for donations included Thrive DC, which serves the homeless, and Mary’s Center, which provides healthcare and social services to low-income D.C. residents.
Another organization, Martha’s Table, provides clothing and food for D.C. children, and a group called Ayuda supports immigrants living in the nation’s capital.
If Washington DC businesses don’t want the money of Trump supporters, they shouldn’t get it.
Simple as that.
