DB's Etiquette Recommendation: Dining out for a good cause with a date or your friends is both sophisticated and sexy. Dress to impress - if you are single, benefits are a perfect place to meet other people with similar values. Always remember to treat your servers with respect and tip generously if you are treated well. Don't talk about yourself the whole time and avoid getting into heated debates (save those for after dinner, especially if there are many people present). You're all there for a good reason, so chill out and enjoy.
