OK, I realize few of you need another excuse to visit barbecue mecca Pappy's Smokehouse. That said, owner and all-around great guy Mike Emerson called early this morning to say that all of today's proceeds will benefit Catch-A-Dream, a charity that provides outdoor adventures to kids confronting life-threatening illnesses.

Cardinals fans might know that this is a favorite charity of start pitcher Adam Wainwright, and the ace will be on hand at Pappy's for part of the day. Raffle tickets for a Wainwright-autographed ball and bat will be on sale. Pappy's opens at 11 a.m. As always, expect a long -- but jovial -- line.
