The Scunny Memorial Paddle, which ran from Sept. 16 to 21, turned out to be even less fun than Christopher Furst, a marketing director for Power Plant Live, thought it would be. And the novice kayaker didn't go in expecting the 175-mile kayak trip was going to be a day at the beach. "In all honesty, it was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life.

Mama's on the Half Shell is now a bona fide, indisputable major success. That's fine. Mama's was a love letter to Baltimore from Patrick "Scunny" McCusker, a successful tavern owner and indefatigable nice guy whose wonderful life continues to be celebrated and honored almost a year after his untimely death. McCusker, who loved his city very much, wanted Baltimore to have a good, old-fashioned seafood house, something nice but not too fancy, where diners would feel as comfortable and satisfied as they did at places like Haussner's and Connolly's, a memorable seafood shack on the old waterfront.

I wasn't fortunate enough to know Patrick "Scunny" McCusker, but I was saddened by his untimely passing ("Canton fondly remembers McCusker," Aug. 26). After reading the article about him in The Sun, I was struck by the irony that he was about the same age as Barack Obama. Mr. McCusker created more jobs and did more for the welfare of our city and state than any government programs. And yes, he did it by himself, as did many other hard-working small business people. Mr. McCusker's philanthropic efforts were the result of a generous nature.

A mourner showed up decked out in full Elvis splendor. A beer truck emblazoned with the Mr. Boh logo led the funeral procession. And more than 2,000 people packed the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen — it was standing-room-only in the rear vestibule and the transepts — to mourn Nacho Mama's owner Patrick "Scunny" McCusker and, as one longtime friend said, to put the "fun in funeral. " "This is what Scunny would have wanted — an audience," said Sean Leahy, who spoke Wednesday at the Mass for the Canton restaurateur hailed for his camaraderie, his philanthropy and his drive to revitalize the neighborhood.

Traditional Irish music filled O'Donnell Street Square on Wednesday evening as a group of men hauled a blue racecar off a tow truck. A crowd cheered when the men wheeled the car onto the grassy square, which was imprinted with the National Bohemian Beer logo. When racecar driver Patryk Tararuj participates in the Grand Prix of Baltimore this weekend, the vehicle will carry the name of restaurateur Patrick “Scunny” McCusker, who died Friday in a traffic accident in Ocean City. Tararuj, a 33-year-old Canton resident, never met McCusker but said he has heard many stories of his philanthropy and love for the neighborhood.
