I don't ask for things on my blog, but this is a special circumstance. If you are reading this and can help, it will mean so much.
My friend Linda, restaurant manager, baseball fan, movie buff and comedienne extraordinaire, has a debilitating spinal condition for which she recently underwent surgery. Add to that the fact that this surgery has left her incapacitated for 6-8 weeks and therefore unable to work, and you see the problem.
So, the Westport Flea Market Bar & Grill and ComedyCity (at the Flea Market) are holding a benefit fundraiser for her. There will be live music (and open mic) by some of Kansas City's favorite local musicians. There will be cheap world famous Flea Market burgers and beer. There will be comedy. And there will be raffles with incredible prizes. Even a City Pretties Earrings of the Month Club membership (a pair of earrings once a month for six months - a $99 value).
The cover charge will be $5 (for the Flea Market side), $20 (for the ComedyCity side, which pays for the show, entry to the Flea Market and two tickets to a future ComedyCity show!) and raffle tickets are $2 (buy five, get one free!) for the smaller items and $10 for "big ticket" items, including Chiefs and Royals tickets, dinners at The Quaff, bluestem, Avenues Bistro, Governor Stumpy's, Matsu Sushi, a year's free admission to the Riot Room, and much, much more.
You can find more information and the invitation here.
