The Tap Project is a nationwide fundraiser for UNICEF, wherein participating restaurants ask customers to purchase a glass of tap water for $1. The project takes place next week, beginning Sunday, March 16 through Saturday, March 22. The money raised will go to providing clean, safe drinking water for people in third world countries.
As part of the PDX Tap Project, there’s a celebration tonight at the Hippodrome Circus Arts Center (315 SE 3rd). It’s a party thrown by W+K12 for the waitstaff of all the restaurants that are participating in the project.
Tonight features music by Glass Candy, Caves, E*Rock, Reggie Watts, and DJ Beyonda. For more information about Tap Project, and a list of participating restaurants, go to the website here.
UPDATE 12:55 PM—I’ve learned that this event is invitation only, for the staff of the restaurants who are part of the project. RSVP required. Still, be sure to get involved next week when the project is underway by visiting the participating restaurants.
