Yesterday was I believe the 5th Annual Dine Out For Mom where numerous restaurants across the Upstate participate by donating a portion of all their sales for the day to the Let There Be Mom ministry that benefits families in which the father or mother has a life threatening illness. This year the charity has meant a great deal more to me as I learned Tuesday night that my guitarist and longtime friend, Chris Moon's father Bryan has stage 4 pancreatic cancer that has spread to his liver.
Since Tessa was off yesterday, she picked us up lunch from Five Guys Burgers and Fries, one of the restaurants participating. She had a burger while I tried their most excellent Bacon Cheese Dog!
For dinner, we went out to Travinia Italian Kitchen since they were yet another participant. She had the Pollo Isabella and I had the Sinatra Chicken. We thoroughly enjoyed the food all while helping out a most worthy cause. You gotta love a charity to which you can give to simply by feeding your own fat ass!
