I know some of my readers are in the D.C. area so, if you are and you're available Tuesday night, head on over to Finn macCool's for a show by my man Buckwheat, who is currently walking from Miami, Fla., to Alaska to raise money for the clinic in his little town of Skagway. He's a great guy and a natural-born performer who is well-known for his shows built around the poetry of Robert Service. The show is free, with donations accepted for the clinic if you choose to open your wallet for a good cause.
You can read about Buckwheat and why he has undertaken his walk across North America by clicking over to this story (originally published in Alaska magazine) on his website. Check it out. And if you make it to the show on Tuesday night, say hello and tell him I sent ya.
