Guest Blogger Abe Jones on Uno, His Grandma, and Touchin’ All the Bases
We are proud to be a part of Festive Mixology – A Signature Cocktail Experience, September 8th in the Peace Plaza. The money they raise goes to Hiawatha Homes, and so, for the next few days, we'll be featuring guest bloggers from Hiawatha,.
"Hi, I am Abe Jones and my most favorite thing to do in the whole world is to play UNO. My grandma comes to my house and we play UNO a lot, she is the one person who won't let me cheat.
I also play baseball in the summer at the Miracle Field and I am a great hitter.
I had a traumatic brain injury when I was a young boy. I use a power wheelchair to get around and I really enjoy being able to go fast. I can get around all of the bases before anyone can catch me. I have an iPAD that I use to listen to music and can email my family and friends with assistance. I love to go on vacation to Las Vegas and Florida."
What is Mixology? It is custom cocktails made by Rochester's best bartenders. It's good food from Johnny Mango's! And it's a worthy cause, Hiawatha Homes, where they provide quality support services to people with disabilities at home and in their community.
You sip and mingle, nosh and chit chat. And judge. There'll be a judging panel, but guests pick the Most Congenial Mixologist, People’s Choice Cocktail, and Best Mocktail (I just learned Mocktail is NOT a cocktail that makes fun of you and/or wears shot necked turtleneck sweaters).
