Chiditarod is an annual human dogsled shopping cart race/food and donation drive/bar crawl. Over one hundred teams of 5 people each will be gussying up a shopping cart, dressing up in crazy costumes, collecting canned good and money donations (that’s where you come in), and racing around the city like maniacs. The Secret Gentlemen team and I are working with Chiditarod Chicago to raise money to fight hunger in Chicago and have a hell of a lot of fun in the process.
This Saturday morning and afternoon—March 1—a team of ten Secret Gentlemen will be racing, and a team of another 25 will be running one of the race’s checkpoints: Club Foot (1824 W Augusta Blvd, Chicago, IL 60622). I will be DJing from 12:30 – 4:30, and if you stop by and have a drink, the bar will donate a portion of your tab to the cause.
Maybe come by? Good times and shenanigans are a given.
When all is said and done, it’s the year’s biggest one-day donation of food to The Greater Chicago Food Depository, it’s a boon to hungry people throughout Chicago, and it’s a hell of a lot of fun.
