We're doing it again! For the 5th year in a row on New Year's Eve, Alameda resident Andy MacKay will play Auld Lang Syne on the bagpipes in over 20 bars and restaurants in Alameda, CA, benefiting American Cancer Society and kicking off NYE celebrations. Last year we donated over $5,000 from online and through the collection on the night!
Andy will again be accompanied by Jake and Elwood Blues (in kilts!), to 'assist' the wonderful Alameda public in making our target for this great cause.
Come on out on the night to cheer us on and also support your local hostelries early on New Year's Eve. We'll be starting from McGee's on Park Street, Alameda around 6.30pm, then wending our way merrily across the Island, ending at 1400 Bar and Grill on Webster, probably by 9pm. Blink and you'll miss us!
Here's the route: McGee's, Park Street Tavern, Alameda Island Brewing Company, Speisekammer, Lemon Tree, Churchward, Linguini's, Town Tavern (tbc), American Oak, Lost Weekend, Star Pizza, Hobnob, Lucky 13, Club House, Z's, Forbidden Island, Swell, Wally's, Fireside, The Hunter, 1400 Bar & Grill.
And if you can't come out to join us please support the cause and donate online here with anything you can.
Many thanks for your support! Happy New Year to everyone!
Cheers! Andy MacKay
