Grab your furry companion and head on over to Pour Richard's, where we're getting a jump start on trick or treating with Howl-o-Ween. From 1-5 PM on Saturday, Oct 31, we'll have treats for lucky canines, courtesy of the crew at Happy Tails Doggy Day Care and Destination Dog. Human companions haven't been forgotten- we'll have samples of delicious beer and wine. Local photographer Peter Willis will be snapping photographs of Halloween-bedecked furry critters for our display wall. With every photo, we'll give you a choice of 5% off your Pour Richard's order OR a 5% donation to Forever Home Rescue, helping homeless dogs find their forever homes.
The New Yorker's Shouts & Murmurs* column is one of my favorite distractions.
