A “Name the Cow” for a burger event, a Community Restaurant Week finale, a Child & Family Taste, a church spaghetti dinner and a Knead Doughnuts fundraiser for Amos House are among the things to do.
Harry’s Bar & Burger will host the “Name the Cow Kick Off Event” on Saturday, Oct. 27, from noon to 5 p.m. at its Lincoln location at 200 Front St. If you have driven down Front Street over the last few weeks, you might have noticed Harry’s cow. It still doesn’t have a name, so Harry’s is asking for help from its guests. Through Dec. 31, diners will be able to submit their most fun and creative name for the cow. The person who submits the winning name will win a free burger every day for one year. At Saturday’s launch, there will be free cheeseburgers and beer specials, and kids can enter a costume contest at 3 p.m. The first-place costume will take home a $250 gift card.

In addition to donating unsold doughnuts to Amos House at the end of each day, Knead Doughnuts has launched a campaign to raise money for the agency, which for decades has helped people in dire straits rebuild their lives. From now through Nov. 3, customers may dream up their own doughnuts, drop by either Knead Doughnuts location — 135 Elmgrove Ave. or 32 Custom House St., both in Providence — and fill out a contest entry form for a $1 donation. The winner will have their doughnut made and sold. Knead will match all contest sales dollar-for-dollar.
