SausageFest: The Reckoning

“On Saturday, October 2nd, 2010 at Archon in St. Louis, the most amazing and terrible event in the history of ever shall take place.  The event will bring together all kinds, creeds, and souls who will give from their wallets and take meat on their lips and drink on their tongue to battle a great evil.  Elixir once forbidden will be imbibed, great warrior women will couple, a beast with massive paws will stumble as jewels once hidden, now exposed, are baptized from the chalice of a Pimp. So it is written.  So it shall be.” ~ Boozinomicon: Prophecies from the Back Seat, page 238.

So THAT happened.

SausageFest was an amazing success.  Not only as a gathering, but as a party, a fund-raiser and a generally DAMNED good time.

We made $505.06 which will be donated to a foundation known for bringing awareness to Breast Cancer.

(Note: A Virtual SausageFest is going to run through the month of October to add to what we’ve already raised. The widget above is tracking the results of that… you can even donate through the widget too!)

I was the one that has to take blame and credit for the idea of Sausagefest. Back in August I was having a hungry day and started thinking of smoked sausage… the rest became twisted along the way into what was birthed into the world as SausageFest.

I might have been the one spearheading the endeavor, but I was not without an AMAZING amount of help and support from a huge group of people. (Or at least FAR more people than I thought would help.) If you don’t see your name here, point it out to me, you are likely one who needs thanked and in the blur of the moment and trying to remember it all I’ve over looked it. Without further adieu..

Thank you!
