Two Monaco restaurants are helping the Italy earthquake relief efforts by including pasta all'amatriciana on the menu. The dish originates in Amatrice, a town where over 200 lives were lost. If you order a bowl of the pasta in either Mozza or Saliere, 10 euros will be donated to the Italian Red Cross.
L'Eto karaoke bar is enticing families to visit on Saturday afternoon. From 5pm to 8pm there are free drinks and entertainment for kids, and a 30 euros menu. Phone +377 93 30 62 26 for more information and reservations.
