Make a bid for Make-A-Wish

Some of the K-State memorabilia up for auction.

Applebee’s is classing up its 2035 N. Rock Road location, and in preparation, it’s auctioning off much of the sports memorabilia that decorates its walls.

Those who stop in the restaurant between now and midnight on Thursday can make bids, silent auction style, on items from the Kansas City Royals, NASCAR, the Kansas City Chiefs, K-State and more. Click here to view a sampling of some of the items up for bid.

All the proceeds benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation, that awesome organization that let me judge meatloaf recently.

Those who really want to help the Make-A-Wish cause also can do so by dining at Wichita Buffalo Wild Wings locations on Wednesday.  Diners should bring along this printable coupon and a portion of the meal ticket will be given to the cause.

On another note, I missed you. What’d you eat while I was gone?
