Hero: Charles Barkley Treats Lake Tahoe Firefighters to Dinner

Normally arrogant ex-basketball star Charles Barkley is planning to take 100 Lake Tahoe firefighters out to dinner in appreciation for their heroic duties during the recent Lake Tahoe fire that destroyed 250 homes in the area in June.

In addition to taking the firefighters out to dinner, Sir Charles has offered $25,000 to the fire relief fund. While this is a minute sum in the face of $160 million dollars in damages, it sure is great of him to do this.

Barkley and his 100 person entourage will dine at Cabo Wabo Cantina at Harveys Lake Tahoe. Cabo Wabo is owned by Sammy Hagar. Ideally Sammy and Harrah's (Harvey's owner) should comp the whole thing and donate Sir Charles' tab to the relief fund. Additionally, Hagar should donate all of his guitars and musical equipment so we don't ever have to hear him play or sing again.
