Although we should be celebrating women every day, March is officially women's history month and tomorrow, March 8, is International Women's Day—so females will be getting a little extra love in the coming days and weeks. And while there are plenty of events and parties to attend to celebrate, a few of your favorite restaurants and brands are getting in on the action and shelling out deals and donating to female-based charities.
Here are some of the best:
Jack's Stir Brew: This cute coffee shop is giving out free cups of stir brew for the ladies, any size, any temperature and all freakin' day.
Maman: Order the IG-worthy rose gold latte, available now until March 11 at all Maman locations. The new drink is made with house-made vanilla syrup, edible gold glitter and rose petals for $5. And 15 percent of the proceeds from each drink will be donated to Every Mother Counts, which helps women receive maternal healthcare.
Tavern on the Green: What does an iconic Central Park restaurant and a Brooklyn speakeasy have in common? Family. The executive chef of of Tavern on the Green is collaborating with his daughter-in-law, the co-chef of Karasu. They created a Thankful for Women salad, made with cured salmon sashimi, shaved asparagus, radish, puffed rice and a poached egg. The $15 salad is available until April 1.
Kombrewcha: The hard kombucha brand is celebrating women throughout all of March by partnering with women-led bars and restaurants. At places like Two Hands, Meadowsweet, Lighthouse, Murray's Cheese (among many others), if you purchase a Royal Ginger bottle, cocktail or draft, the company will donate $1 to CATALYST, a nonprofit promoting workplace equity.
The Sosta and Annex: Chefs Ali LaRaia and Caroline Schiff are both participating in the "Empower Through Flour" campaign throughout the month, where a percent of proceeds from a purple dish at each of their restaurants will be donated to I AM THAT GIRL, a group that helps girls embrace self-love. At LaRaia's the Sosta, order the beet ricotta toast with hazelnuts and tarragon for 30 percent of the proceeds to be donated, and order the blueberry-olive-oil-pound-cake with a blueberry-elderflower glaze and candied violets at Annex for a 15 percent donation.
Ample Hills: All of the ice cream chain’s locations will be offering 20 percent off for women on all scoops, pints and merchandise to help bring awareness to the wage gap.
