Food Goes to the Dogs

FidoToGo_001.jpgChicago Party Animals (1133 W Fulton Market), an indoor play space for dogs, begins its Waggin Wednesdays weekly summer series tomorrow--an opportunity for food lovers with dogs (or dog lovers with food?) to meet, eat, and hang. Food trucks from SamichBox, Two Italians, Bridgeport Pasty, and More Cupcakes will be in attendance; even a truck for the dogs (pictured) will show up. A cash bar (with proceeds going to A Dog's Day Rescue), a raffle, gift bags, and dog items for sale will also be on hand. Your dog is going to have to drive you two home afterward, amirite? Event runs 6-9pm.
