As February dawns, I am looking to cut back spending on beer after a few weeks of having quite a bit (thanks to the discovery of a new craft beer bar in little old Ise).
But my half-hearted and vague plans to "cut back" are nothing compared the efforts of Matt at Beer Free February. He has pledged to stay completely dry -- free of beer or any other alcohol -- for the whole month.
The real kicker is this: he is doing it as a fund-raiser. Check out the website, track his progress, and put down some money for a good cause. So far, he has raised $100 toward a goal of $3,000, which he describes as enough to sponsor a child for 10 years of schooling.
