Okay, so the Boston Marathon is a little more than a month away, so I thought it might be fun to have a fundraiser for the 2009 CYCLE Kids Boston Marathon. Well, it won’t just be me as I will be joined by two other CYCLE Kids teammates, Ali Cohen and Rich McCallum. They are super nice people and immensely talented. For instance, using only a hoe and a large glass of water, Ali once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. Rich has been known to remodel train stations on his lunch breaks.
I know you have questions, so here’s the skinny:
Q: When the heck is this thing?
A: Sunday, March 15th, 5PM to 8PM
Q: Where the heck is this thing?
A: Middlesex Lounge (www.middlesexlounge.com), 315 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02141. Conveniently located in Central Square. On-street parking is pretty easy, but there is also a parking lot nearby.
Q: How old do I have to be to get in?
A: It’s all ages, so everybody is welcome to attend. Acting your shoe size is highly encouraged.
Q: Is there any groovy entertainment so I don’t have to just sit there for 3 hours like a bump on a log?
A: Oh yes! My former band mates from the The Change Up will be playing. If you’d like a taste of their style, go to www.reverbnation.com/thechangeup and take a listen to some of their songs. It’ll be an acoustic sort of thing, so no need to bring your earplugs.
Q: I’ve got a ton of money burning a hole in my pocket. What can I do with it?
A: Well, it just so happens that there will be a silent auction and raffle for some cool stuff.
Q: What happens if I’m thirsty and hungry?
A: No worries, there’s great food and drinks available for purchase. Try the ten tiny tacos. They’re yummy.
Q: How much is it going to set me back getting into what the New York Times is calling the one event in 2009 that you shouldn’t miss? (Alright, they didn’t say this, but I am!)
A: Absolutely nothing. Though, there is a suggested donation of $10 – $20, but again, it’s only suggested and you are under absolutely no obligation to donate, especially for those folks who have already donated.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. If you can’t attend, but you’ve been meaning or would like to donate, just select the link in the upper right hand portion of this screen.
And to prove I’m fun at a party, here’s a photo of me at my friend Hilary’s birthday party with a suction cup flashlight attached to my forehead, fighting off evil spirits with a plastic sword:
It doesn’t get much better than this, folks.
