Ha thanks.

Well Sam Adams is following my blog, twitter. They are coordinating my final stop #351 at the Brewery and I am having some fundraisers at some bars where they will donate stuff to raffle off. Its just in the beginning stages. I am planning on going to bars where they have Sam Adams girls there doing giveaways and I will have a beer there..

Since I posted this thread today, I have received 3 more emails for places that want me to come by.. Local (Newton), Tempo (Waltham), Spirit Bars (Cambridge).. Also I have just mailed the 1st batch of donations. Feels great.

Thanks.. I have 2 bars that are promoting when I am coming to all their customers and putting on their facebook for when I come. Already over $1000 in donations. I'm trying to go to some cool places. In Carver I will be in a cranberry bog and in braintree they'll have me in a car racing suit with a trophy.

I forget - have you been to Foxborough? Maybe Mr Kraft could have you make a toast/photo op in one of the corporate boxes! Maybe you could get a complimentary tour at Fenway and drink a beer at the green monster. How have you broken down Boston as far as number of towns districts?

I'm so pleased you endeavor is getting its legs!

Well Boston is reserved for #351 Sam Adams Brewery, but of course if Fenway was to have me I could make Boston 2 stops (already kinda did 2 Framinghams. Angry Hams and BBC).. I am only doing Boston, meaning no townships. 351 is enough lol

I have emailed Gillette because I definitely want to do the stadium. Not sure if I'm emailing the right dept, but I'm holding off on Gillette until maybe this gets bigger. Please follow along. I have hit just basic places so far just to get a bunch of towns under my belt, but its going to start getting real fun!

Tonight I am going to Jillians. Will get a good pic next to some games or a billiards table.

The Worcester Sharks have shown interest. I emailed the guy back to see if I could get a pic on the Zamboni.

That was the other comment I wanted to make. Careful just using BBC as British Beer Company as there is a Berkshire Brewing Company in Western Mass.

Dude you've been robbed! Maybe you should contact NECN and they can do a second story on your adventures which are much more entertainment.
