October is a month that celebrates many things: Halloween, apples, cranberries, cookies, chilli, vegetarian awareness, and plenty of other not-so important options.

You will, however, be noticing a bunch of pink popping up all over town -- and no, it's not National Legally Blonde Month or anything along those lines -- the first full month of fall is also host to 31 days of National Breast Cancer Awareness.

To show support, some local restaurants are offering specials throughout the month.

SAIA is serving a "Pink Roll for the Cure" to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Filled with shrimp, mango, bell pepper and cream cheese, it's wrapped in pink soy paper and topped with spicy crab salad and pink miso uzu sauce. For each roll purchased, the $1 will be donated.
SAIA is located at 999 N Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-302-5252, or visit saiasushi.com

Thasos Greek Taverna will be featuring a cancer prevention menu, in addition to the regular and Dine Out Lauderdale menus, through the end of the month. The menu will feature seasonal vegetables and wild caught sustainable seafood. According to owner Sophia Mylona, who has a masters in nutrition from NYU, "Research has shown, when adults follow the traditional Mediterranean diet, they reduce their risk of death from heart disease and cancer. A diet rich in vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts, legumes, olive oil, fish, flavorful herbs and spices, is what our menu is all about."

Thasos will also offer a special pink Kaffir Lime Watermelon Mojito and staff will be decked out in pink aprons.

Thasos Greek Taverna is located at 3330 E. Oakland Park Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-200-6006, or visit thasostaverna.com

<!--I simply got paid $6784 operating off my laptop computer this month. And if you're thinking that that is cool, my unmarried friend has twin toddlers and revamped $9k her 1st month. It feels therefore sensible creating abundant|such a lot|most} cash once others have to be compelled to work for thus much less. this is often what I do,
