Whitlow’s (2854 Wilson Blvd) is inviting bar-goers to take the bull by the horns, so to speak, to raise money for the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA).

The Clarendon watering hole is holding a fundraiser for IAVA tomorrow from 6:00 to 11:00 p.m., complete with food and drink specials and a mechanical bull. There’s no cover for the event, but bull rides are $10. Proceeds will benefit IAVA.

See the event’s Facebook page for more information.

    Great cause for a great organization. Too bad I won’t get one on of those robo-bulls.

      Me neither, but I’d put up $20 to see each of the 31st district Senate candidates give it a try.

    What’s a better way to help injured vets than to risk paralysis on a machine that throws you around?

    • KalashniKEV

      IAVA isn’t just for wounded Vets.

        Of course it isn’t, but that defeats the purpose of the joke. Don’t overthink it.

          Actually, not being funny defeats the purpose of the joke even more. But you can believe what you want.

            I didn’t say it was funny.

            Going out of your way to be a dick is also not funny.

      More importantly, aren’t the ceilings at Whitlow’s kinda low for this?

      • Lou

        I think that backroom area could fit it.

    On the menu will be mechanical rocky mountain oysters.

      Mmm, deep-fried bearings…

  • This event is going to be a blast. Great way to thank our veterans, many of whom have been fighting now for 10 years. With 11/11/11 fast approaching this is a fun way to give back.

    I’ll be there!

    Be careful Union Jack’s, Whitlow’s might steal your cheesy corn hole league next.

    Make sure you eat FIRST, then get on the bull.
    heh heh.

    Hey, did you hear the real news? Audrey Clement trounced Hynes and Tejada on Sunday at the League of Women Voter’s Debate.

    ArlNow would rather talk bull about the latest restaurant craze.
