A Deep, Meaningful Experience For All

I got an e-mail today from someone in Hillsboro, Illinois promoting an all-you-can-eat pancake and sausage/biscuits and gravy breakfast fundraiser on Saturday, March 29. That's the same day as the Hillsboro-Roubaix bicycle race although such a meal is better suited for a famished cyclotourist than for a chubby competitor trying to shed weight early in the Midwest racing season. Breakfast will be served at the Hillsboro Moose Club on Main Street from 6 AM to 11 AM, and it's only $6 for adults/$4 for kids 5-12.

They probably contacted me because my Hillsboro-Roubaix Web page comes up first in a Google search for "Hillsboro-Roubaix". It's consistently one of the three most popular pages at BikingIllinois.com. Some readers may be thinking, Wow, Dave is such a swell guy to promote this for free. Seasoned readers know that there is always a price. Well, here's where I get to have my fun...

As I mentioned above, this event is a fundraiser:
All proceeds go to benefit Hillsboro High School’s Post Prom 2008, which provides a safe, substance-free after-prom event for our youth!
I know what they meant, but isn't every prom-related event "substance-free"?
