If you’ve seen the Tap Project ad in this week’s issue of the magazine, you already know that for today only, you can pay one buck for your glass of tap water (participating restaurants listed here) to help support UNICEF’s efforts on behalf of Third World children without access to a decent drinking source. We got a note promoting the project co-written by Le Bernardin’s Eric Ripert, who playfully called New York City tap water “a special, which will be presented in the free-range unfiltered form [that is] admired worldwide for its freshness, [and] traditionally served chilled, but equally delightful at room temperature.” So whether you’ve got a heart of gold or just plain cottonmouth, now’s your chance to make a difference — before you break into the liquor, that is.
