Free Meals for Teachers and Education Professionals at Cafe Rio

Free Meals for Teachers and Education Professionals at Cafe Rio

From Cafe Rio:

Cafe Rio Mexican Grill has officially reached the east coast and with the two new openings in Manassas, VA and Olney, MD comes increased community involvement. During the week of August 29th-September 4th, Cafe Rio Mexican Grill is focusing on the teachers and education professionals of surrounding communities by giving them an “apple” if you will. Any local educator that presents their official ID at either of the new restaurants will receive a free meal! In addition, a donation jar will be next to each cash register, allowing customers to donate to their local school districts.

“Teachers are the unsung heroes of our local communities,” states Bob Baker, President and CFO of Cafe Rio Mexican Grill. “Giving them a free meal is the least we can do for their continued day-to-day effort.”

My Kind Of Senor-Rita

My Kind Of Senor-Rita

Finally something that tastes as good as it looks in the picture. Rita's an ice cream parlor standing by its' mission of providing "Ice Cream Custard Happiness" has become a popular choice amongst District of Columbia and Maryland area residents. Originally started in the summer of 1984, Bob Tumolo, a former Philadelphia firefighter, opened his first store in Bensalem, Pa, deciding to name the then small time ice cream business after his wife, Rita. Initially developing the perfect flavors alongside his mother Elizabeth, the team concentrated on using fresh fruit and natural products in order to provide customer satisfaction.
