The post where I shamelessly beg for money, but you get pizza and beer in exchange. And a chance to win more.

On Monday, March 19, the very good folks at Mellow Mushroom on Colonial Dr will be hosting this fundraiser to help me raise funds for my upcoming MS 150 bike ride. Here, as the kids like to say, is the 411:

Here's a laughably boring and unimaginative flyer advertising the event.

All you need to do to participate is show up to Mellow between 5 and 9 PM on the 19th, mention the MS fundraiser to your server, order lots of delicious pizza, beer, or some of the other tasty choices they offer, and enjoy. 15% of your total bill will be donated to the National MS Society. How easy is that? You don’t even have to say hi to me if you are not inclined, though I’ll be there the entire time (I know, the sacrifices that I make in the name of a good cause) and would love to say hi and thanks for coming out. I may even buy you a drink or dessert for your troubles.

Don’t have time to stay because you need to get home and feed the family? Grab something to go or better yet bring in the family for some dinner. The kids will thank you for it so you’ll be a hero at home as well as a hero for supporting the great work of the National MS Society. That’s win-win. my friends.

Hope to see you there. Tell your friends, neighbors, family, and co-workers to join us. And many thanks to the very fine and all around awesome folks at the Colonial Mellow for their support.

Can’t make it to the fundraiser but still want to contribute? Simply click the Donate link on the upper right of this page and enter your donation online.

To make things fun and give you a chance to win something, a little contest. I have two favorite Radiohead songs, can you name one or both of them? First person to e-mail me or post one of the correct answers below in the comments wins their choice of a free beer or dessert on the 19th. If you get both you win twice. (A little hint, they appear on different albums and neither is an opening or closing track.)

Cheers.

  1. First two guesses are True Love Waits and Fake Plastic Trees and both are wrong. TLW is a really good guess, it sits just outside the top 2 in my Radiohead pantheon at #3.

  2. Congrats, Michael. You are a double winner via e-mail. The correct answers (of course) Let Down and How to Disappear Completely.
