FreshFarm's Charity Auction; No Expansion For Busboys

CHINATOWNCuba Libre has recently unveiled a new Monday-nights-only deal that offers unlimited small plates (from a selection of about 20) for $29 per person. There will be things like empanadas, guava ribs and chicharrones and they will be available under this deal between 4 and 11 p.m. on Monday evenings. [EaterWire]

CHARITYWIREFreshFarm Markets launched its online auction for the Farmland Feast on Friday, meaning there are things like CulinAerie cooking classes, holiday turkeys, dim sum for six at The Source and dinner at Zaytinya, Jaleo, Oyamel, Comet Ping Pong and more up for grabs. The auction ends on November 7 and the funds raised will go to support the markets. [EaterWire]

TYSONS CORNER—Every Tuesday and Wednesday evening, Michel at the Tysons Corner Ritz-Carlton supports a charity with five percent of the proceeds from its $60 four-course, prix-fixe menu. This month's charity is Teardrops to Rainbows. [EaterWire]

NON-EXPANSIONWIREBusboys and Poets has long been known for its liberal bent as a restaurant/bookstore/art space embraced by the anti-war community. So it should come as no real surprise why owner Andy Shallal tweeted earlier today that he had been considering expanding the concept to Montgomery County, but has now changed his mind: the City Paper reports it is due to the county's decision not to ask the federal government for a reduction in defense spending.
