They say it takes a village, and various Mountain Brook restaurants clearly believe the old proverb. In a community collaboration organized by Leah Harrigan of La Paz Restaurant & Catering, several Mountain Brook restaurants are coming together to raise money for hurricane relief.

Operating under the name of “It Takes A Village,” participating restaurants, in conjunction with the Mountain Brook Chamber of Commerce, will be cross-promoting one another in an effort to drive crowds to their restaurants and thus drive proceeds to a relief fund.

The following restaurants are participating:

  • Mountain Brook Creamery: 50 percent of Sales Monday, Oct. 9
  • Newk’s Eatery: 10 percent of Dinner Sales Tuesday, Oct. 10
  • Mafiaoza’s: 50 percent of Dinner Sales Thursday, Oct. 12
  • Taco Mama: 10 percent of Sales Monday-Wednesday, Oct. 9-11
  • Otey’s Tavern: 10 percent of Sales Monday-Wednesday, Oct. 9-11
  • La Paz: 10 percent of Sales Monday-Saturday, Oct. 9-14 and 50 percent of Sales Sunday, Oct. 15. In addition, La Paz will also be on-site for Mountain Brook’s Jazz in the Park event on Sunday evening, Oct. 15 and 50 percent of those sales will go to hurricane relief as well. Jazz in the Park is a free community event from 5-8 p.m. in front of Emmet O’Neal Library, and all are invited to attend.
  • Dram: Donating $2 (20percent) of each Moscow Mule and Bloody Mary featuring Tito’s Handmade Vodka – with Tito’s matching the donation. This will continue through Halloween.

“It Takes A Village” t-shirts will also be sold to fundraise. For more information, visit or contact Molly Wallace of the Mountain Brook Chamber of Commerce at or (205) 871-3779.
