Who Says You Can’t Find a Good Man at a Bar These Days?
Don’t you love going to your favorite watering hole where you know there will be great music, cheap but strong drinks, and a bartender who will take a knife to the lung for you? Wait…what?
Well, that’s what happened to one very lucky D.C. woman who was the victim of a purse-snatching incident a few weeks ago. Luckily for her, she happened to be accompanied by a very heroic local bar-tender (and unarmed I might add), Mike Boone, of Trusty’s Bar. While it seems that the unidentified woman was spared any injuries, Mike was not so fortunate. He suffered 8 stab wounds, at least one of which punctured his lung, and narrowly missed all of those other important organs we need to live.
After spending 4 days recovering in the hospital, Boone was able to identify the perpetrator in a line-up and police officers quickly made an arrest. Unfortunately, his bad luck doesn’t end there. Facing a plight many of us do these days, Mike has no health insurance to cover the cost of his medical bills — and that doesn’t include the $8,000 helicopter ride he took to receive medical attention.
Even though Trusty’s Bar held a fundraiser to help cover some of his medical costs, it seems as though you can still make donations to help Mike out. Listen ladies, it’s unknown if the woman Mike rescued is involved with him in any type of romantical way- so you could still slip him your number on a napkin… but maybe with an $8,000 check.
After all, he did provide exceptional customer service.
