|Scenes from last year's Fake St. Pat's|
I love it.
My friends' contribution to this messy month starts tomorrow, with Fake St. Patrick's Day - an afternoon of drinking and oysters, with a side dish of charitable giving, at Ryleigh's Oyster on Padonia Road.
This year, the party starts at 1 p.m. and is a fundraiser for the Dance Head and Neck Center at GBMC. Any and all comers are welcome - we'll be in the bar in the middle of the restaurant. It's always a good time.
Ryleigh's is donating 10% of what's spent during the party to the Dance Center and we'll be raising money a couple other ways, too, including a raffle for gift baskets including items donated from a bunch of very generous local businesses.
Those businesses include some of the best spots in and around Baltimore:
Baltimore's Waterfront Partnership
Charm City Chocolate
Ladew Topiary Gardens
Loyola University Athletics
Prigel Family Creamery
Residence Inn in Hunt Valley
Wells Discount Liquors
Wit + Wisdom
The baskets will include donations from these organizations, as well as other goodies, including a purse handmade by Alicia and her mom...and lots of wine and beer and liquor. Booze sells raffle tickets!
If you're in the area tomorrow, please stop in and say hi. It's a great cause and an absolute blast. Happy Fake St. Pat's!
