The White Horse Tavern, located in NYC's borough of Manhattan at Hudson Street and 11th Street, is known for its 1950s and 1960s Bohemian culture. They recently put out some tables to offer diners a better experience at their restaurant and they need the support!

Baby Brasa in West Village

This delicious Peruvian spot will serve you up organic rotisserie chicken, sides, salads & sandwiches, plus cocktails. According to NY Eater, Franco Noriega of West Village Peruvian restaurant Baby Brasa says that he put out tables and chairs because customers often wait up to 25 or 30 minutes for their order, and they were starting to find de facto seats on neighbors’ private stoops. Stop by if you're in the area to support their efforts.
