Good cause in Old City tomorrow

Just got this from Mike "The King" Naessens (hey, Mike, I'm kidding!), and it looks like a good thing if you're going to be in Philly tomorrow.


Old City Merchants Team Up To Help Fallen Officer’s Family

“Cooks for Cops” Event Set for May 20th

Old City restaurant and bar owners are banding together to raise money for the family of fallen Philadelphia police officer Sgt. Stephen Liczbinski.
“Heroes like Sgt. Stephen Liczbinski who are willing to face the ultimate sacrifice daily to keep Philadelphia a great city are the ultimate examples of people living the eulogy they’d like to be remembered by,” said Eulogy owner Mike Naessens. “We are proud to support our heroes.”

On Tuesday, May 20, participating Old City businesses will donate 10% of their proceeds to the trust fund set up to help Sgt. Liczbinski’s family. More than 30 businesses are scheduled to participate in what is being called “Cooks for Cops.”

Participating businesses include: Beneluxx Tasting Room, Eulogy Belgian Tavern, Philadelphia Fish & Company, Mexican Post, Karma, Buffalo Billiards, Mad River, Triumph, Cebu, Brownies, Plough, Serrano, Sassafras, Penn’s View, Bookbinders, National Mechanics, Nick’s Roast Beef, Positano Coast, Rotten Ralph’s, Triada, Marmont, Anjou, Mizu, Pizzicato, Fork, GiGi, Panini, Lucy’s Hat Shop, Swanky Bubbles, Spasso, Amada, Patou and Campo’s. The money raised by the “Cooks for Cops” event will go directly to the Stephen Liczbinski Family Memorial Trust.

“We are proud to support our police officers and hope you do the same by attending this event,” said Naessens.
