It’s November, which means the more overzealous among us are already prepping for the holidays. Luckily, this weekend is full of events that would make even the most scrooge-like among us want to engage in some holiday prep. Pair shopping for gifts with dogs, wine, and a good cause. Or just forgo all of that and spend the weekend tasting all of the local brews.
This Saturday, November 4 head to 2910 on the Square and get some puppy kisses (or perhaps a new, furry, forever friend). Wings of Love, Kuwait is hosting an adoption event at the local gift shop from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Stop by to peruse the store and dogs from the volunteer organization that brings over adoptable dogs from Kuwait. Who knows? Maybe you’ll bring home a new pup just in time for the holidays!
