Benefit At JLX Bistro
Twenty volunteers will become jailbirds of sorts tomorrow as part of a benefit to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association at JLX Bistro. The volunteers will be arrested and put into a jail costume; once their mug shots have been taken, they will post bail. That money will be donated to the MDA and the volunteers will receive a complimentary meal from the restaurant. JLX Bistro, 16 Main Street, Sag Harbor, 725-9100.
