True confessions: Our first French kiss was with a dog. Not on purpose, of course, but we spent a lot of quality time with our Collie growing up and she had one of the quickest tongues in the west.
She got us through a lot of tough times as a teenager, too, because she listened to all our deepest secrets and biggest problems. If only she’d been able to prescribe medication, she would’ve been the best therapist we ever had.
Because of this deep bond, we’ve always had a soft spot for dogs of any shape, size or level of bad breath.
So it should come as little surprise that we’re suckers for dog charities. One of our favorite local organizations is DFW Rescue Me and we’re proud to be a part of the team that helps produce the annual food-and-drink event, Kibble & Cocktails, proceeds from which benefit DFW Rescue Me’s Voices for Justice fund.
Kibble & Cocktails was founded by Lisa and Jeremy Jones, owners of Barking Hound Village near Love Field and the spectacular event has raised more than $102,500 in its brief history. This year, the one-night goal is at least $50,000.
So we need you to come!
On Tuesday, April 5, join us at 3015 Trinity Groves for free-flowing Stoli cocktails, Texas Ale Project beer and Bottled Poetry Wines, as well as tasty bites from Uchi, Filament, Gemma, Nonna, Nick & Sam’s, Baboush, Souk, Sharon Van Meter (owner of 3015), Whole Foods and Original Cupcakery.
The handsome and charming NBC 5 news anchor Brian Curtis serves as host for the festivities. Plus, one of our favorite parts is the raffle, where everyone purchasing entries has an equal chance of winning fabulous prize packages, not just the highest bidders.
It’s a party five years in the making and we promise you’ll love it.
We’ll even give you a French kiss as a thank you.
