Circles Thai in Northern Liberties has been planning a beer dinner on Thursday, November 14th with upstart Saint Benjamin Brewing Company for some time now. But with the devastation of the Philippines from Typhoon Haiyan, Circles chef and owner Alex Boonphaya has changed the dinner into a fundraiser. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the four-course, $35 beer dinner will go to relief efforts.

Reservations are available for 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. seatings and can be made online.
