Pink Taco Holds Fundraiser for … PETA?

Written by PETA | May 12, 2011

Remember the pink donkey? Well, not only has Pink Taco restaurant owner Harry Morton agreed never to pull such a stunt again, he has come up with a festive way to make amends. From now through May 15, patrons of the Century City, California, cantina can order a special margarita, the “PETA-rita,” with 100 percent of the proceeds going directly to PETA’s campaigns against animal abuse.

Another L.A. eatery, The Spanish Kitchen, is holding a “Defend the Donkey” fundraiser tonight that features a vegan prix fixe menu with all of the proceeds also going to PETA.

Even if you don’t live in the L.A. area, you can still donate to PETA. Or you can have your own “PETA-rita” party and ask your guests to make donations for every concoction you whip up in honor of Pinky the donkey.

    The restaurant is called “Pink Taco?” Think about that for a minute or two.

    Who does Pink Taco think they are fooling?! They think that people will forget that god aweful stunt they pulled just because they donate a few dollars to PETA? Forget it. Don’t be fooled. They are bad people. They already tried this stunt before with the Pink Donkey and said they wouldn’t do it again and guess what they just did?? What are pulling?? A Micheal Vick stunt?? Trying to act sorry and trying to work with animal groups to cover themselves.

    Kudos to Harry Morton for what he’s doing here. We usually read of belligerence from those that Peta approaches.

    Awesome! Glad to hear he has been enlightened! Has anyone investigated
