NoRey frontman Alejandro Garcia/extreme locavore chef Lou Kohl.
Happy Hour for Hope is that rare event which allows you to rationalize your passion for liquor by saying, "The more shitfaced I get, the more money goes to charity." If the monthly booze-up has had an unavoidable shortcoming, it's that it's been limited to one venue in one neighborhood.
Well, no more: Wednesday night, June 8, from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Happy Hour for Hope will occur simultaneously at three venues citywide. One of these venues--Capitol Hill's Highline--will feature music. And not just any music, but music sung by extreme locavore chef and Seattle Weeklycover boy Lou Kohl.
Kohl's real-life persona, Alejandro Garcia, fronts the band NoRey, which will join Fox and the Law for a Highline happy hour twin bill. One dollar from each $3 can of PBR or $7 strawberry-infused tequila drink purchased will benefit Team Up for Non-Profits.
Elsewhere, all $3.50 of each Trumer Pils purchased at Harlow's Saloon in Ballard will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and $1 from each $5 glass of Canyon Road Pinot Grigio or Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon purchased at Ventana in Belltown will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
So get out there after work and knock a few back. You'll seriously never have a better excuse.
