“We just had a lady pickup to-go,” Boyd said. “She said she’s eating out for breakfast, lunch and dinner.”
Restaurants across Franklin Street celebrated the 26th Annual RSVVP Day this Tuesday.
RSVVP stands for Restaurants Sharing 10 Percent, where the Roman numeral Vs together add up to 10. On the second Tuesday of every November, more than 100 participating restaurants donate 10 percent of profits to the Inter-Faith Council for hunger-relief programs.
Top of the Hill Restaurant & Brewery is a longtime participant in RSVVP day. Floor manager Hannah Schumann said many customers are informed of the event through various advertising outlets.
“We do a lot of social media things, table tents, in-house promotion, flyers, things like that,” Schumann said.
“Usually we see an increase in business on this day. People want to come out, they want to help.”
TOPO waiter Laker Rosenberg said customers are excited when they learn their meal is contributing to a good cause.
“I think everyone should be doing more things like the RSVVP program, especially during the holidays,” Rosenberg said.
