This month, The Original OKRA Charity Saloon is trying something a little different to determine which lucky charity will be the recipient of the bar's December proceeds.

Usually, the bar picks four local charities per month and offers drinkers and diners the opportunity to vote for the organization they most want to benefit. For every purchase -- food or drink -- the patron gets one vote. So do a lot of eating and drinking at OKRA Charity Saloon and you could help a deserving charity win thousands of dollars.
"It helps you feel good about drinking," says Joshua Martinez, owner of Goro & Gun and a board member of OKRA. "Not that I need a reason. But when you drink, you know that the money you spent will trickle down to a charity, and sometimes it's more money than they've ever had in their annual budget."
In order to give the charities who didn't win the pot the past 11 months a second chance, OKRA is holding a tournament of sorts.More »
