We did it again! Played Auld Lang Syne in 17 bars around Alameda on NYE for American Cancer Society, and had great fun doing it – the best crowd ever! With online donations and collections on the night we made over $4,000 again – thanks to all who have donated so far – donations can still be made on this site.
Many thanks to Team Pipe-athon – Joe ‘Jake Blues’ Donohoe (Collector), Jamie ‘Elwood Blues’ Eckmier (Collector), Rod ‘Tarantino’ Ortiz (Camera) and Ken ‘Fittipaldi’ Johnson (Pipe-mobile Driver).
Thanks to all the wonderful people of Alameda who came out to cheer us on, and special thanks to all the bars we invaded on the night: McGee’s (thanks Tim and Tracy!), Alameda Island Brewing Company, Speisekammer, Lemon Tree, Churchward, Linguini’s, American Oak, Lost Weekend, Hobnob, Lucky 13, Club House, Z’s, Forbidden Island, Swell, Wally’s, Fireside, 1400 Bar & Grill (thanks Yanni and Mike!)
Happy New Year to everyone!
Cheers! Andy MacKay
