Wine, Wags and Dog Tags


My kind of event, wine (really good wine), wags (you can bring your well-socialized dogs) and dog tags (benefits a really good cause)….at Bice Grille (158 E. Ontario St.), Saturday October 24, 6 pm. The event benefits Operation Heroes & Hounds, an idea from dog trainer Tamar Geller. She pairs dogs (rescued from shelters) with returning soldiers (those are the heroes). It’s a great idea, celebrating and helping our soldiers, and at the same time saving dogs’ lives. I’m honored to serve as the honorary local host, but it’s really Tamar (author of “The Loved Dog”) and her foundation who have done the heavy lifting on this.

Of course, Tamar will be there to answer your canine questions. I’ll be introducing her, and Ethel our crazy 21/2-year old will probably misbehave and embarrass me. And I hope ChicagoNow blog readers will be there too…Learn more, and make reservations here, or call 310-476-7720.
