Johnny B. Goode, indeed.

Rocker Jon Bon Jovi recently announced the opening of JBJ Soul Kitchen, a pay-what-you-can community kitchen with the tagline "Where HOPE Is Delicious."

A link on Bon Jovi's website solicits donations for the effort, saying, "Soul Kitchen is a community restaurant with no prices on the menu; but a donation of $10 covers the cost of your three course meal. If you are unable to pay, come back and volunteer. Your donation will help us continue our mission of serving nutritious dinners in a warm and welcoming setting, where families can come and meet their neighbors."

The restaurant, in the town of Red Bank in Bon Jovi's native New Jersey, serves a three course meal based on American Regional cuisine. It includes salad or soup, a fish, meat or vegetarian entree and a dessert. The restaurant is housed in an old mechanic shop and boasts a raised-bed vegetable garden to augment the fresh, local, often organic offerings sourced from nearby farms.

    Bacon is so awesome. I love the smell and the taste. Heck, I even think the word bacon is cool.

    Brava, man. This is really a great idea. I hope it works and expands. If more of that 1% would do this sort of thing, it would go a long way towards making a real difference.
