I'd wager my paycheck that just about everyone in Billings will eat something on Thursday, April 28th.  A large percentage of us will probably eat or drink something from a restaurant. And since you're going to eat anyway... why not visit one of the seven awesome establishments that are participating in this year's Bites of Billings campaign?

It's a really easy way to help kids.

Bites of Billings is hosted by the Breakfast Exchange Club of Billings in conjunction with Childhood Abuse Month.  All you have to do is order food or drink at any of the participating businesses listed below, and they'll donate a portion of Thursday's sales to the Family Tree Center, the Billings Exchange Clubs' child abuse prevention center.

Walker's Grill - 10% donation

Walker's isn't open for lunch, but if you're looking for superb food and drinks for dinner on Thursday, swing into Walker's. Their specialty cocktails are the bomb (try the Black Dagger!) and I really like their mussels appetizer.

Bin 119 has been serving charcuterie before everybody knew what a charcuterie board was, and their lunch and dinner menu offers some great options. Try the honey-roasted pork belly or the crab cakes with coconut curry sauce tapas. Delish.
