Chef/owner Alex Boonphaya of Circles Thai (812 N. Second St. in Northern Liberties) had planned a four-course beer dinner with brewers Tim Patton and Christina Burris of Kensington's Saint Benjamin Brewing Company.

And then the Philippines were blasted by Typhoon Haiyan.

Boonphaya is donating 100 percent of the proceeds of Thursday 11/14's $35-a-head feast (6 and 8 p.m.) to relief efforts.

Make reservations here.
