Wednesday 7/19/2012: We're All Coming in on Our Night Off to Cook for You and Hear Riccardo Crespo
One Wednesday only! Mat & Naddie's is open an extra night this week in order to raise more money for Share Our Strength's Dine Out for No Kid Hungry®. Diners will enjoy dinner and the satisfaction of contributing to a great cause all while enjoying the soothing compositions of Riccardo Crespo.
Riccardo's original compositions are a rich but gentle mix of Musica Popular Brasileira, and contain elements of folk, Bossa Nova, and Latin Music. The result is a beautiful blend of "World Music", that is both distinctive and passionate. With Mr. Crespo singing in Portuguese, audiences can appreciate the essence of Brazil through the magic of his music performed in traditional Brazilian style.
September 17-22 2012: Share Our Strength’s Dine Out for No Kid Hungry®

The funds we raise will support No Kid Hungry™, Share Our Strength’s® campaign to end childhood hunger in America.

Dine out with us from September 17 to 22 to make No Kid Hungry™ a reality. Five percent of all dinner sales will be donated to Share Our Strength®. The more often you dine, the more we can help.
