Feb. 24 is a Daytona 500 viewing party at Buffalo Wild Wings at Sardis Road North (near Independence Boulevard), with drawings for Daytona and NASCAR items, and with 10 percent of diners' tabs going to the "Relay for Life" fundraiser of the American Cancer Society. If you buy a "Blazing Challenge" -- a dozen of the place's hottest wings, which must be eaten "in 6 minutes or less without the aid of napkins or beverages" -- all the money goes to the ACS. (Mention "Relay for Life" to your server.)
Then, Feb. 28, eat at Salsarita's at Cotswold (304 S. Sharon Amity Road) and bring in the flyer below, and 15 percent of your total will go to Relay for Life, which raises money for services and educational programs for cancer patients and their families.
The 2013 Relay for Life will be May 31, at the Irwin Belk Athletic Complex at Johnson C. Smith University; info: www.relayforlife.org/charlottenc.
