Fresh off a 2-0 victory, Benny Feilhaber, Matt Reis, A.J. Soares, and Chris Tierney will celebrate the end of New England's 10-game winless skid by joining former Revolution striker Taylor Twellman as celebrity bartenders Thursday night at GEM Restaurant and Lounge in Boston.

They'll mix and pour for Twellman's "Think Taylor" charity, which the former MLS MVP and 101-goal scorer founded shortly after a 2008 head injury prompted his retirement from the Revs in 2010. All tips earned by the soccer stars will go toward the non-profit, which supports education, fundraising, and awareness of concussions and sports-related brain injuries.

Now an ESPN soccer analyst and prolific Tweeter, Twellman and his helpers will go behind the bar from 6:30-8:30, with doors opening at 6 p.m. And if you needed any more incentive, know that the Rev Girls will be there, too, handing out team gear and prizes.
