BALTIMORE (WMAR) -
How else do you honor a man who's meant so much to Baltimore's Canton neighborhood?
The neighborhood's unofficial mayor, Patrick "Scunny" McCusker died six months ago.
His friends at Nacho Mama's toasted with a Natty Boh commemorative can honoring one of Baltimore's favorite sons.
"Everybody has their favorite drink," said Delaware Dave Powell. "...how often do you get your name and your favorite charity put on your favorite beer? This is like home base for Natty Boh here in Baltimore and for them too do this for us we thought this was pretty special," he said.
As patrons of Nacho Mama's enjoy lunch and drink their favorite beverage, folks are buying six packs and cases of Natty Boh to honor their friend.
Part of the proceeds from the commemorative can will go to "Scunny's" favorite charity.
"Natty Boh is growing...they're selling way more Natty Boh than they ever have," said Powell. "We like too think we're a big part of that, Scunny was a big part of that, Nacho's was a big part of that. For them to do this can in his passing, just to thank him for the stuff he did for Believing Tomorrow -- were pretty proud of that," he said.
"We heard of the contribution of Scunny to the neighborhood... felt that it was a good thing to do," said Jerry Wilhelm. "Number two, I like Natty Boh but would like to have it as a remembrance for the hard work and effort Scunny put into the neighborhood," he said.
"Scunny McCusker was a good friend of mine," said Sean McCormack. "It's obviously going to a good charity, a good cause - Believe In Tomorrow which he was a big part off the charity. It was only right for me to get a case and once in a while have a beer with my buddy Scunny," he said.
The commemorative cans will be sold at Mama's On The Half Shell and Nacho Mama's.
