A Charitable Evening With The Mets At Foley's Pub

Tonight, the cast and crew of Studious Metsimus (and A Gal For All Seasons) spent an evening at Foley's Pub and Restaurant doing our part to help the tornado victims of Moore, Oklahoma.

I had the 405 Burger (which is named after the telephone area code in Moore) and my gal for all seasons had the Big Red Foley Chicken Sandwich, which we both enjoyed.  Proceeds from the 405 Burger were used to help the victims of the terrible tragedy.

In addition to helping out the tornado victims with the special burger, Foley's also invited various Mets players to take part in a meet-and-greet with fans, with proceeds once again going to those in need in Oklahoma.  For a $30 donation, we were able to get a ball autographed by Jeremy Hefner, Dillon Gee, LaTroy Hawkins and David Aardsma.  And for no additional fee, we also got each player to take a photograph with our very own Joey and Iggy Beartran.  A certain PR man with a mouth covered in sauce from the wings he was eating also made a photo appearance with the bears.

Thanks once again to the players and to Foley's for getting together for a fine cause (and for making such a thick, juicy burger ... YUM!!).  Enjoy the photos!
