There were a lot of people who came to support the Birdland Jazzista Social Club in Berkeley, CA, last night, and contributed to the in-kind donation drive for the victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda. There were three large cargo boxes nearly filled when we got there, and by the end of the show, it would fill so many more.

All the guests were treated to the organizers’ charms, live music from local bands, and bbq. Yup, bbq! Last night, they served barbecued chicken drumsticks with Acme bread.

I am grateful to have contributed to the donation drive last night, and to have finally visited one of the places my friend performs at. I even got to meet cutie-pup, Hershel, who did a fine job of guarding the donations bbq . 😉
