Food From The Bar

Food From The Bar

The 15th Annual Food From The Bar Comedy Night for the Food Bank (called “RES IPSA JOKUITOR”) took place at Back Forty Texas BBQ in Pleasant Hill on April 27. This event was the place to be for great food, friends, prizes and laughs! Justice James Marchiano served as MC and started the evening off with his annual joke. Opening Act Andrew Norelli, who has performed nationally, gave a clever and professional routine that had the audience in stitches. Headliner Bob Sarlatte regaled the audience with stories from his many appearances on David Letterman and his long career as a performer – as well as his role as announcer for the 49’ers. The Food Bank collected almost 200 pounds of beef stew graciously donated by our guests.
