Please join Barred in DC at Thomas Foolery on Thursday, April 2nd from 6-8pm. We will be behind the Dupont Circle bar guest bartending, and all tips and donations earned will go directly to support the Jeffrey Robert Satterfield Memorial Scholarship Fund, which honors Jeff, a high school classmate who passed away while as a sophomore in college at West Virginia University. This scholarship fund, established by Jeff’s family and friends in conjunction with the WVU Foundation (full disclosure: Barred in DC is one of the two official signatories to the scholarship fund endowment agreement with WVU, along with Jeff’s brother), will annually award a scholarship (once fully funded) to an incoming student to the WVU Statler School of Engineering and Mineral Resources, where Jeff was a student.
If you haven’t been to Thomas Foolery, the goofiest bar in DC (as detailed in the Barred in DC’s review from last year)-the spot has free games like Jenga and Mario Kart Wii, sells grilled cheese sandwiches and milk/cookies, along with a solid list of bottled craft beers and cocktails (often with candy in them). There’s also an “Angry Hour” till 7p where you can get a $1 off your drink if you order in an angry voice, along with a Plinko game that sets the price for any Smirnoff Ice you order.
If you’d like to donate, go tohttps://www.mountaineerconnection.com/sslpage.aspx?pid=501. Next to “DESIGNATION”, mark “Other” and then note either the Jeffrey Robert Satterfield Memorial Scholarship Fund or the fund number (3Z567) in the “OTHER” and/or “COMMENTS” text boxes.
You may also mail your donation to: WVU Foundation, One Waterfront Place – 7th Floor, Morgantown, WV 26501 and note the scholarship name or number on the Memo line of your check. Donations may be tax deductible; please consult your tax advisor.
Hope you can make it out and look forward to seeing old friends and meeting fellow followers of the blog in person at this unique spot. Menus below:
