Grapes for Humanity is an organization that helps to raise funds to benefit humanitarian causes around the world with the assistance of the international wine community, and Geddy Lee is a member of the board of directors. As part of their 2022 Grapes for Climate Change online fundraiser auction last October, they auctioned off a dinner for 8 at Barberian's Steak House in Toronto hosted by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson along with Les Claypool and his wife. It looks like the dinner finally took place last week, and Les Claypool posted several photos from the evening's festivities to his Purple Pachyderm social media channels, as seen in this Instagram post. A photo of the menu is included as well, where the courses were named after some of Les' songs (Shake Hands with Beef, My Name is Mud Pie, etc.), and Alex Lifeson can be seen in a couple of the included group shots.
