Thursday – August 25 – Yappy Hour at La Cocina
This sounds like fun. Enjoy it all – your canine, your cocktail (or coffee drink) and live music at downtown’s best secret courtyard. Guitar virtuoso Stefan George kicks it off at 5 p.m. and English bluesman Tom Walbank plays from 7 – 9 p.m. Plus homemade dog biscuits for your hound. Sounds promising…

Saturday – September 17 – Dog Wash
Save the date. This is a fundraiser for Arizona Greyhound Rescue. Volunteers are needed to wash and dry all breeds of dogs, trim nails, help with check-in or at the merchandise table. Early birds can help with setup and for people who like to sleep in, you can help with tear down. This is a good activity for teens 16+ and strong active people.
