Happy Thursday - so much to do!

Join the Humane Society of Louisiana for a Yappy Hour from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at Le Bon Temps Roule' (4801 Magazine). There is no charge for admission, but raffles, a silent auction and drink specials will benefit the Society. (Monetary gifts or donations of cat or dog food or other animal care supplies are always appreciated, of course!) Come help raise needed funds for the animal victims of hurricane Isaac. Proceeds from this event will specifically help pay veterinary costs for Isaac, a dog who was rescued with third degree burns on his back. He has recovered from his ordeal and is now available for adoption. So have some fun and help out too!
After Yappy Hour fun, have some dinner for a great cause! Three Muses (536 Frenchmen) in the Marigny is showing their support by running a Weekly Fundraiser throughout November to support City Harvest of NYC. Each Thursday in November (minus Thanksgiving), Three Muses will be running a special menu where they will kindly donate 100% of their proceeds to City Harvest of NYC. The special menu for this fundraiser was crafted by Three Muses Executive Chef, Daniel Esses, and represents his childhood growing up in New York City. For more info on this wonderful charity click: City Harvest of NYC. This is a great (and delicious) way to show your support for such a worthy cause!
