The winner gets two tickets to the Sagebrush Classic Feast, a fantastic beer and food pairing charity extravaganza sponsored by Deschutes Brewery in Bend, Oregon. You must hurry and get your entry in by July 10, 2009. The event is held on July 18, 2009. Portland Food and Drink has full details about the contest. Good luck!

Even if you don’t win, you can still buy tickets to this worthy charity event.

Marching for Babies

Marching for Babies
In the cold Baltimore rain
Must be worth a beer

References: Today was the Baltimore area March for Babies. It rained. We walked anyway. It’s worth it.

Why do we walK? Well, I’ve thought about having a “Beer for Babies” fundraiser in support of the March of Dimes. But I’m afraid people may get the wrong idea. Maybe next year.

Thing of the Day: If you can spare a dime, please consider contributing to the March of Dimes.
