Behind Bars to Escape Hunger!

Hey Folks,
The title doesn’t mean I started a really weird diet for the year of 2012 and I have no will power! Nor does it mean I’m starving…well, occasionally but not currently.

I will be behind bars in the Old Penitentiary from 6-7pm on Friday night to  help Idaho State Historical Society’s MAKE HUNGER HISTORY!!!  See details below*** here’s our schedule for the week also!  Hope to see you soon!!!

Thurs. 1/12  The Lock, Stock and Barrel right in  Boise from 7-10pm

Friday 1/13  The Old Penitentiary from 6-7***  THEN the Piper Pub in Boise from 8:30-11:30pm

Sat. 1/14  The Buzz Cafe off of State Stree from 7-9pm

Sun 15  Crusty’s Pizza in Mc Call from 7-10pm


The Idaho Foodbank sees a dramatic drop in food donations in the month of January. So all month long in January the Old Idaho Penitentiary and Idaho Historical Museum provide half priced admission to any visitor who brings two canned food or non-perishable food items for the Foodbank.
As part of MAKE HUNGER HISTORY, on Friday January 13th from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., the ISHS support organization The Friends of the Historical Museum will present the first ever “Escaping Hunger Celebrity Lock Up”; a free community event held at the Old Idaho Penitentiary.

Special drawings, tours, prizes and giveaways will occur all day long. While there is no charge to attend, food and monetary donations are encouraged! All proceeds will be divided between the Idaho Foodbank and a scholarship fund for Idaho school field trips. Local celebrities will be locked up from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Their goal will be to get the most food and monetary donations. The winning celebrity will be presented with the “Warden’s Cup” and bragging rights for the year!

Please come down and make a donation and explore the historical place we have here in Boise, I’m sure a few prison songs will be flying between Bill Coffee and I, and some other greats in the community!

Let’s put an end to hunger…come bail me out!  Hope to see you soon!
