Quaker Steak & Lube: Restaurant uses “Red Solo Cup” for charity
Quaker Steak & Lube Truck Night Every Friday
New Berlin, WI. In the song “Red Solo Cup,” country singer Toby Keith proclaims “Red Solo cup, the best receptacle for barbeques, tailgates, fairs and festivals.” While these statements are quite true, there's one thing red solo cups can do that Mr. Keith forgot to mention—raise money for charity.
On Friday, May 4th, “Red Solo Cup Truck Night” at Quaker Steak & Lube, 4900 South Moorland Road, will use the ubiquitous red Solo cups as a fundraiser. For every $5 cup of beer or Quaker Steak and Lube Lube N Ade, the New Berlin restaurant will donate $1 to Adoption Resources of Wisconsin.
But in the song Keith also croons “Red Solo cup / I fill you up / Proceed to party / Proceed to Party,” and party is exactly what will occur.
“Toby just wants everyone to have a good time, and that's exactly what Red Solo Cup Truck Night will do,” says Kusch, “Not only will we have the red cups, patrons are encouraged to bring and show off their trucks. Whether they have a small compact pick-up, or a full blown monster 4x4, all trucks, all years, all pickup truck models are welcome.”
A festive and fun atmosphere will be evident at “Red Solo Cup Truck Night,” which will occur every Friday night starting at 5p, from May 4 to September 28 in the Quaker Steak & Lube parking lot. Selected nights will see local bands playing rollicking sets and every Truck Night will feature some great rides.
Milwaukee-based musicians, The South End Blues Band, will kick off the festivities on May 4 as they raise their red Solo cup and play a thrashing blues rock set.
“We really look forward to having everyone coming out and filling up that red Solo cup with charity.”
