With Inauguration Day tomorrow and the Women's March set for Saturday, bars and restaurants around San Francisco are planning to donate some or all of their profits to promote women's reproductive health, civil liberties and equality.
From tacos to donuts to cocktails, you can eat and drink this weekend to support Planned Parenthood, Equality Now, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, among other organizations.
Friday, January 20th
Dynamo Donut + Coffee
Dynamo Donut (2760 24th St.) has created a pink donut in honor of women's reproductive rights, which it will exclusively sell tomorrow. 10 percent of the donut's proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood.
The beloved Mission dive bar (2575 Mission St.) is donating 50 percent of its proceeds to Planned Parenthood on Inauguration Day.
This week, Tacos Cala (50 Hickory St.) is donating all proceeds from taco sales to organizations “that help preserve our rights,” including Planned Parenthood, Horizons Foundation, Human Rights Watch, Centro Legal de la Raza, and the ACLU. Since the taqueria is right near Civic Center, it will also have extended pre-Women's March hours on Saturday, from 11am-3pm.
On Friday, the worker-owned bakery plans to donate 50 percent of sales from its Inner Sunset location (1331 9th Ave.) to local immigrant rights groups. (Thanks to tipster Laura D.)
Nectar Wine Lounge
Nectar Wine Lounge (3330 Steiner St.) is donating 10 percent of Friday evening's sales to Planned Parenthood Advocacy and Planned Parenthood Texas, which is on the verge of having its Medicaid funding cut.
The Inner Sunset wine bar (545 Irving St.) will donate 10 percent of its sales from Friday through Sunday to Planned Parenthood.
Spark Social SF
From 11am-9pm on Inauguration Day, food truck park Spark Social SF (601 Mission Bay Blvd.) is hosting Meals With Feels, an event designed "to fight our despair with food."
All proceeds raised by the participating food trucks will be matched by “a group of concerned companies,” with the money supporting Planned Parenthood, Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, The Trevor Project, Doctors Without Borders, the International Refugee Assistance Project, and Ignite National.
Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant
Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant (One Ferry Building, Shop 23) will donate 10 percent of its sales on Friday to Planned Parenthood.

Moby Dick Bar
The Castro bar (4049 18th St.) plans to donate 25 percent of its Inauguration Day proceeds to the ACLU. Co-owner Joe Cappelletti says the bar aims to "help fight any injustices from The New Administration, all day, all night."
"We won't be showing the Inauguration," he added, so if you'd like to escape the news coverage while still contributing, this might be your spot.
Fig & Thistle
The wine bar (313 Ivy St.) will donate 100 percent of its proceeds from a special Friday-only rosé flight to Planned Parenthood.
Four Barrel Coffee & The Mill
Four Barrel, which has locations in the Mission (375 Valencia St.) and Portola (2 Burrows St.), and sister Divisadero cafe The Mill will donate $1 from every beverage sold on Inauguration Day to Planned Parenthood.
Bayview Businesses For Planned Parenthood
A number of Bayview businesses are teaming up to donate proceeds to Planned Parenthood on Inauguration Day. Laughing Monk Brewing (1439 Egbert St.) will donate $1 from every beer sold, Fox & Lion Bread (5273 3rd St.) is donating 10 percent of pizza sales, and Radio Africa & Kitchen (4800 3rd St.) and Gratta Wines (5273 3rd St.) are also donating 10 percent of sales.
In perhaps the most generous giveaway on this list, 100 percent of El Rio's bar proceeds will benefit Planned Parenthood on Inauguration Day.
Update: tipsters have let us know the The Lodge on Haight, Castro Village Wine Co., and InnerFog will donate 10 percent of proceeds to Planned Parenthood; Ruby Wine in Potrero Hill is doing a wine tasting event tomorrow from 5-9pm, with all process going to PP.

Brenda's French Soul Food & Libby Jane Cafe
Also located near the march site, this woman-owned restaurant and cafe (644 and 652 Polk St.) will donate 10 percent of its profits to Planned Parenthood and the SF Immigrant Legal and Education Network, on both Inauguration Day and the day of the Women's March.
