Frugal Friday- Charitable things to do around town 

PIWC brings you the latest in great Food & Wine happenings at a cost friendly price!

For Frugal Friday this week, we’ll highlight some worthy causes to spend your wine and dining dollars on. While maybe not so frugal the money spent goes a long way to help those less fortunate than us.

Skylark Diner, Edison,  showcases Chilean wines to support earthquake victims. Last weekend I went to The Lark,  one of my favorite hangout bars/diners.  They really have a pretty descent wine list thanks to their new Sommelier Courtney. The food is pretty descent as well. Not your regular run-of the mill diner food.  Kind of upscale for a diner with a  very, very retro interior.  I glanced at their new wine menu and found this lovely Chilean Cabernet Sauv ,Don Maximiano Errazuriz 2008. Very impressive wine. Nice tight tannins with a great chocolate bouquet.

The Skylark will be showcasing this wine all month with 100 % of the proceeds  being donated to Chilean relief. I loved the wine so much, I  bought a bottle knowing the proceeds went to a great cause. And at $16 a bottle a real steal. My recommendation is  stop by and sample the wines and buy a great Chilean to boot. A worthy cause and a great wine.
