Raise A Glass to Toast Michael Jackson

It's been a while since I've mentioned it, but the National Toast to Michael Jackson has quickly come upon us. Remember to gather together this coming Sunday, 9/30/07, at 9pm eastern time with fellow beer lovers in appreciation of Michael Jackson and a life well lived. It will also be an opportunity to raise funds for the National Parkinson's Foundation. As no doubt you're aware, Michael Jackson passed away roughly a month ago and left a hole in the beer world, the size of which will never be completely refilled. His influence on the industry was noticeable around the world and the outpouring of gratitude for his work was immediate and substantial. The concept of the National Toast was born almost immediately and was set to 9/30 to allow establishments to prepare for the evening. Use the resources below to read more about the past month since Michael passed away and to discover what establishments near you are doing to mark the evening. If you don't see your favorite watering hole, it's not too late to encourage them to lead a toast and collectible funds on Sunday night. Raise a glass and be generous. It's the very least we can do.
