Remember a few weeks ago when community leader Sally Michel’s purse was stolen outside of Petit Louis Bistro?  She felt awful about the bad publicity it brought to her Roland Park neighborhood and to the restaurant, so she and her fans (and she has many!) have decided to make something positive out of the crime.

To celebrate her pluck and her birthday, Petit Louis will hold “Fill Sally’s Purse!” on Tuesday, February 28 (Sally’s actual birthday), from 5 p.m. until close. The restaurant will donate 20 percent of all checks for the night to Sally’s pet project, the Parks & People Foundation, where she is chairman of the board.

It’s right that the foundation should stand to benefit from the crime: Sally joked after the robbery that the only thing that the thief found in her purse was a stack of solicitation letters addressed to potential donors of the Parks & People Foundation!

For reservations, please call (410) 366-9393 and mention that you are dining to Fill Sally’s Purse!
