You've heard, of course, of bring your own beverage gatherings. And there is, of course, the bring your own drinking vessel get togethers. But Portland Buy Local is putting a new twist on networking Thursday for its latest mixer: BYOD.

Those in the know will immediately know that this is an invitation for Fido to have an evening out. Those who aren't in the know may show up with dishes, doormats, doilies or drunks in tow.

All will gather at Planet Dog on Marginal Way from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to learn more about the local business scene, socialize with friends and PBL members, and enjoy some beverages from Sebago Brewing Company.

Make sure you have this one in your Google calendar 'cause Fido can't even wait to show off his spring look.
