2010_06_help-jose.jpgAmazingly enough, just half a year after a Babbo manager lost his leg in a freak accident with a sanitation truck, Jose Mendoza, a delivery man for sister restaurant Otto, fell off of a subway platform and lost both of his legs to an oncoming train. Thus, owners Joe Bastianich and Mario Batali are once again hosting a benefit for their wounded worker. On June 21, they'll host a party with snacks and drinks from 9 PM - 12 AM. Suggested donation is $50 a head. [EaterWire]
