Best Tribute: Scunny Boh can

At Nacho Mama’s and Mama’s on the Half Shell, starting in March, Scunny had his own Boh. National Bohemian made the commemorative cans to honor the memory of Patrick “Scunny” McCusker, who died last year in an Ocean City bicycle accident. They feature his name and the words “Oh Boy What a Guy!” Proceeds from their sale benefit McCusker’s favorite charity, the Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation, for which he paddled across the bay in a kayak, twice. Many remember McCusker as the kind of man who would try to help anyone, anywhere. After he died, City Paper got a call from a woman who was on the beach two days before the accident. Her son was pulled from the water injured, and Scunny—then a stranger to her—rushed to help. “Nobody else on the beach moved to help us,” Aphrodite Alourdas said. “I shook his hand and said, ‘Thank you so much for your kindness.’” Here’s to you, man.
