Fresh-Squeezed Margaritas for Fair Trade

Among the many, many things I enjoy about my new job at TransFair USA, is the excellent company of my co-workers. Two weeks ago we took advantage of the fact that 10% of proceeds that night would be donated to TransFair USA, and went out to dinner at Oakland’s Doña Tomás restaurant. I had the chance to meet a few of my colleagues’ friendly spouses and to sample the Margarita Especial. Yum! The restaurant was packed on this Wednesday night and we had a table inside for all 13 of us with view through French doors onto the patio. There is breezy outdoor seating at Doña Tomás, an indoor dining room with high ceilings and a bar area with festive red walls and decorations. Wait staff were welcoming and the owner Dona was on her feet in stylish heels greeting people at the door, delivering entrées hot from the kitchen and chatting with guests at tables. An evening of fun, food and friendly people to benefit TransFair USA, Fair Trade Certified™ and farmer families from around the world. Do you have a favorite bar, restaurant, or club interested in supporting Fair Trade and TransFair USA for a night? Let us know!
