This database will be updated on an ongoing basis

If you would like to anonymously suggest an addition to the list, please notify me using the form below. Your name and email are NOT required to make a submission.

An organization is “verified” by either confirmation from an established local publication, confirmation from the organization’s own website or by calling the establishment myself to confirm with staff. No organization will be added to this list without verification. If your organization has been added to this list incorrectly, or if your policy has changed, please let me know and I will remove it immediately.
