Lenny B. Robinson and his vintage BatmobileBatman will be visiting the Arlington YMCA at 3422 13th Street N. on Friday to teach kids about poison prevention.

The Caped Crusader will be at the ‘Y’ from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Friday, March 22, hosting an event called “Be a Superhero in Your Home.” The event, which is sponsored by the YMCA, the Alliance for Consumer Education and the American Association of Poison Control Centers, will teach kids “to be a superhero in their home by reading labels, asking permission before using an unknown product, and other poison prevention tips.”

Robinson — who will be arriving in style in his $300,000 1966 replica Batmobile. Robinson, 49, has been visiting sick kids in children’s hospitals across the county in the vintage Batmobile, as part of his Baltimore-based Superheroes for Kids organization.

Robinson made international news last year when his $250,000 Lamborghini Batmobile was pulled over by Montgomery County Police. The dashcam video of the traffic stop went viral and Robinson became a minor celebrity in his own right.

Arlington families interested in participating in Friday’s poison prevention event are asked to RSVP to events@consumered.org. Only 100 tickets are available for the event.

    Will Batman be eating at the “Y” that night?

      That’s not even funny.

        Have someone explain it to you.

        • Cletus Van Damme

          I would do that if I didn’t understand. Unfortunately, I get your vulgar joke and pathetic attempt at being funny. People like you try to hard to be funny on this comment board attempting to get up votes.

      I’m guessing they will be serving hare pie.
