A Grand Gesture for Scunny

We all heard the news over the weekend of the untimely and extremely shitty passing of beloved Nacho Mama’s founder Scunny, who was tragically killed in a cycling accident in Ocean City. In a showing of grand charity, the likes of which would make Scunny proud, comes this very special announcement.


On Wednesday, bars, restaurants and small businesses from Canton, Fells Point and Federal Hill will band together to show their love and respect for Patrick “Scunny” McCusker.

Many bars and restaurants will be donating 30%xt of their sales to the Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation, to which Scunny contributed to on a regular basis.

The list of bars and restaurants in Canton that are participating has been steadily growing for the past two days. It will be hard to find an establishment that is not doing what they can to give back to a man that gave so much to the community. For many other establishments, not only in Canton, but in Federal Hill and Fells Point, they have banded together to sponsor a car in the upcoming Baltimore Grand Prix dedicated to Scunny.

A local driver, Patryk Tararuj, will be driving the number 48 car dedicated to Scunny. A team of local businesses are working diligently to get the race car set up, decaled and out on display in O’Donnell Square for all to see on Wednesday evening. The race car will qualify for the USF 2000 on Friday and will be in the races on Saturday and Sunday. Keep your eyes peeled for the weeping Nacho Mama’s Natty Boh car at the Grand Prix this year. The dedication of a race car in the Baltimore Grand Prix is something that is truly fitting for one of the only men to ever own their own Natty Boh car.

The sponsorship of the race car was only possible due to the unwavering support of over 20 small businesses in Canton, Fells Point and Federal Hill. This shows that Scunny was not only a well-respected man in Canton, but throughout all of Baltimore.

Thank you to those businesses who helped make this possible
