Have a pitcher with a pitcher

Are you going to be in the city on Wednesday night? Want to have a drink with an all-star?

To raise money for High Socks for Hope, Dave Robertson will serve as a celebrity bartender at Foley’s Pub and Restaurant in Manhattan on Wednesday night. Robertson will be behind the bar from 7 to 9 p.m. raising funds and awareness to help victims of the tornado that crushed his home town of Tuscaloosa, Ala. back in April.

From the High Socks for Hope website:

Foley’s will donate half of its proceeds that evening to the High Socks for Hope fund, established by David Robertson with his wife, Erin, to help people who live in Tuscaloosa rebuild their lives. All of David’s tips from bartending will go to the fund, as will the proceeds from photographs and baseballs that he signs at the event. There will also be an auction for prizes including Yankee memorabilia and a chance to have lunch with David at Foley’s.

In addition, Foley’s is renaming one of its menu items in honor of the Robertsons, and a portion of on-going sales will continue to benefit High Socks for Hope.

Foley’s is the same place where Brian Cashman tended bar this winter. It’s a great little baseball place in the city. My  hope is to get out of Wednesday’s day game in time to get down there.
