The Breakfast Club, 9 a.m. Oct. 3 at Betty’s Restaurant (370 Virginia St.)
Not everyone makes it a late night on Friday night. If you’re the morning type then this the meet-up for you. Every first Saturday of the month, tag along with The Breakfast Club to a different locally owned restaurant in Buffalo.
Make sure you RSVP correctly to the Facebook event, as the organizers make their reservation each week based on the number who say they are going. The group varies in size, but it’s always chatty.
All You Can Eat Spaghetti Dinner, 3 to 8 p.m. Oct. 4 at Boomerang’s Restaurant (995 Niagara St.)
Join the Buffalo Gay Men’s Chorus to kick off its new season with its insatiable, biannual fundraiser. Come anytime for all you can eat salad, spaghetti, meatballs and dessert, even stop in or call ahead for takeout.
The chorus throws in the occasional spotlight performance, plus there’s a bounty of baskets to raffle off and a 50/50 split worth enough to cover a car payment. Tickets are $10 at the door or from any chorus member.
Dining Out For Life, all day Oct. 6 at 102 restaurants across Western New York
Restaurants across the region are giving back to the community by donating 25 to 100 percent of their day’s food sales to HIV/AIDS services and programs at Evergreen Health Services. If you want to support, you only have to go out to eat.

Join 12,000 other diners in fighting AIDS and supporting local businesses who are committed to finding a cure. You’ll have the opportunity to donate directly to the cause if you’d like, and no one leaves hungry.
