Mid-City neighborhood cocktail bar Twelve Mile Limit and local blood bank The Blood Center will host a blood drive from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

At the event, donors can enjoy appetizer specials and may be eligible to receive a T-shirt from The Blood Center; they also get $5 off food at the bar. In donating, they'll help replace the city's easily-depleted blood supply. (Blood shortages are a recurring problem nationwide — as recently as January, the American Red Cross pleaded with the public to donate blood and platelets to mitigate a winter shortage. Without appropriate blood reserves, hospitals often can't proceed with planned, lifesaving surgeries and transplants.)

Make sure to eat a full meal before donating, and bring a photo ID. (And presumably, don't drink until after you donate.) Donors must be 16 years old and meet a short list of eligibility requirements.
