Eat, Drink and Help a Friend in Need: Drink for De Ieso, Bridgeport, Thurs. Nov 21
This Thursday, Nov 21, Bridgeport will be the next in line to host a benefit for local beer Blogger/Writer/Promoter Angelo De Ieso. The Facebook link to the event is here.
The event is intended to help Angelo pay for his mounting hospital bills from 5 – 10 p.m. at Bridgeport Brewpub in the Pearl. All proceeds from sales the new IRI beer will go straight to De Ieso along with 20% of food purchases made by customers that mention Angelo that night.
To get the backstory on Angelo's health troubles, go here. Unfortunately, Obamacare comes a little too late for Angleo, though he'll be pleased that his now pre-existing condition will not exclude him from the new affordable health insurance in the future.
So go and drink lots of IRI, and eat some grub while you are at it and help out one of Oregon's biggest beer boosters and therefore a friend to all NW beer enthusiasts.
