On Thursday, the Mt. Washington Tavern will celebrate the one-year anniversary of its re-opening after a devastating fire in 2011 caused extensive damage to the popular restaurant.

To show its gratitude to firefighters who battled the blaze, it will donate 20 percent of its bar sales and a portion of its food revenues to the Baltimore City Fire Foundation and a charity chosen by the Baltimore County Fire Department.

"We have always been civic-minded and like to give back to good causes," said Rob Frisch, owner of the Mt. Washington Tavern. "We are fortunate to still be serving the Baltimore community."
