Dog lovers: I hope you'll join me and my pups Dixie and Ella for the Martinis for Mutts event Wednesday night at the Portland Regency Garden Cafe. It's not often that you get to bring your dogs along for Happy Hour — and this one has a purpose, funds raised will help support the Animal Refuge League of Great Portland.
Humans (21 and older) and their "mutts" (pure breeds too!) are welcome to raise a glass on Wednesday, Aug. 7 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The $25 per person ticket price includes one cocktail and appetizers. There will be raffle prizes, a cash bar and other fun stuff from event sponsor HappyME. All dogs must be on leashes, please.
