Locust Cider

WOODINVILLE Locust Cider is hosting an afternoon of music, art, and entertainment as a benefit for Seattle Children's Hospital. There will be free cider tastings, with art created during the night available for purchase to benefit the hospital. Owner Jason Spears' infant daughter recently underwent extensive (and successful) surgery there, so this is his way of giving back to the hospital. The event runs from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Woodinville tasting room. To attend, you must obtain an invitation by following Locust Cider on Facebook or Twitter. [EaterWire]

GROCERY WIRE — Grocery delivery service Instacart is now delivering orders from Central Co-op. Orders are delivered in as little as one hour from the locally-focused co-op grocery. The delivery area reaches Ballard, Capitol Hill, Downtown, Eastlake, Fremont, Georgetown, Green Lake, Greenwood, Interbay, Laurelhurst, Madrona, Madison Park, Northeast Seattle, Queen Anne, South Lake Union, South Seattle, U District and West Seattle. Existing co-op owners can enter their owner number when placing an order so the expenditures can count towards patronage dividends. [EaterWire]

FUNDRAISERS — Tonight from 5 to 9 p.m., an array of restaurants will donate 20 percent of your bill to the nonprofit Seattle Neighborhood Greenways. A full list of participating restaurants can be found here. [EaterWire]
