Saw this in a press release from Foley’s NY Pub & Restaurant…
Brian Cashman has a new job this off-season: bartender – for one day at least.
The Yankees GM will practice his mixology skills at Foley’s NY Pub & Restaurant (18 W. 33rd St.) from 6-9 pm on Wednesday, Jan. 26, 2011. The money raised at the event will go to Ed Randall’s Bat for the Cure, which supports prostate cancer awareness, prevention and research. Foley’s will donate 50% of its sales from the drinks that Cashman pours during his shift. This “party with a purpose” marks the 7th anniversary of New York City’s most popular baseball bar.
“Every year we try to do something fun while giving to a worthy cause to celebrate our anniversary,” said Shaun Clancy, owner of Foley’s NY Pub & Restaurant, which features one of the country’s most extensive public displays of baseball memorabilia. “When we inducted Brian into the Irish American Baseball Hall of Fame last year, I joked that we should have a job swap. That’s when he came up with the idea of being a guest bartender for charity. We mutually agreed that prostate cancer research should be the cause.”
Seriously, it’s for a good cause. And, it might be the closest that Cashman comes to touching a pitcher this off-season….beer pitcher, that is.
