Nov. 26 Restaurant Tour and shopping event benefit FutureHeights
On Nov. 26, join FutureHeights for dinner and shopping. Two events in the Cedar Fairmount neighborhood of Cleveland Heights will support FutureHeights as well as two participating Heights businesses.
FutureHeights will host its monthly restaurant tour at The Mad Greek, 2466 Fairmount Blvd., from 5 p.m. on, in conjunction with—and proximity to—a holiday shopping event at Ten Thousand Villages, 12425 Cedar Road, from 6 to 8 p.m.
Diners who present the flyer on this page to their server at The Mad Greek, anytime after 5 p.m., will direct 15 percent of their food tab to benefit FutureHeights.
Before or after dinner, they can head across the street to Ten Thousand Villages to shop for unique holiday gifts—or perhaps find something for themselves. Fifteen percent of all purchases made in the store that evening will be donated to FutureHeights.
FutureHeights is a Heights-based nonprofit that seeks to build a vibrant and sustainable future for Cleveland Heights and University Heights through civic engagement. Its programs include community forums, neighborhood tours, workshops, and publishing the Heights Observer community news.
The Mad Greek serves both Greek and Indian cuisines. Its 4 p.m. happy hour offers an extensive list of cocktails. Popular appetizers include the loaded Greek fries and Bombay wings, and entrées feature fisherman’s stew and a variety of curry dishes. Tiramisu and baklava ice cream are among the Mad Greek’s unique dessert options.
