Want to grab a burrito with Mr. Sulu himself? If you live in Los Angeles or New York, you might have a chance! As part of a benefit for Robin Quivers 15 Foundation, George Takei is auctioning off a lunch date for him, you, and maybe, just maybe, a chance encounter with John Cho. Okay, I made that last part up.
Regardless, it's a good cause and the best part is that Takei will pick up your lunch tab. So you know what? DON'T order off the value menu for once. Get a hamburger and fries, but not the soda. Go crazy! The bidding is currently at $1,100 with sixteen days to go, which is a steal for answering all those burning questions about his most famous role. You know, on Heroes?
Anyway, here's the info, and head over to CharityBuzz to secure your lunch-date:
