Baltimore Restaurants Disown Ray Rice...With Beer and Pizza
"Dear Lovers of Women, Not Hitting Women, Non Violence and Just Generally Being a Good Person, come trade your Ray Rice Ravens Jersey in for a free pizza at Hersh's," the restaurant, Hersh's Pizza, wrote on its Facebook page. "These jerseys will save us money on toilet paper this week."
For each jersey they receive, the restaurant has pledged to donate $2.70 to House of Ruth, Maryland, a nonprofit organization dedicated to combating violence against women.
Hersh's isn't the only Baltimore restaurant to publicly disown Rice. Next door, No Idea Tavern is offering a perk of its own:
"Obviously, everything was very shocking for Ravens fans," manager Alex Belush told USA Today. "We just wanted to find a way to bring Ravens Nation together, to take a stand against domestic violence."
Anyone who surrenders their Ray Rice jerseys at the bar will receive a $10 bar tab. No. Questions. Asked.- No Idea Tavern (@NoIdeaTavern) September 8, 2014
The bar has also agreed to donate $2.70 for every jersey. Whether you think these restaurants are capitalizing on domestic violence or trying to take an honest stand, they're still sacrificing their bottom line to donate to a worthy cause. Just make sure you bring your own toilet paper.
