Pawsible Scenarios: Hurricane Prep for Pets

On Wednesday (9.24), the Dat Dog downtown location (601 Frenchmen Street) will be the site of a Yappy Hour and an Eat n’ Greet with rockers Adelita’s Way.

This weekend's (slightly) cooler weather invited dog lovers to the City Park's Festival Grounds for NOLA on Tap, with over 200 brews to support the LASPCA. Over at Christian Unity Baptist (1700 Conti St.), New Orleanians got a chance to clean their records at the Justice and Accountability Center's expungement day. According to representatives for the event, approximately 350 of the 500 participants will come out of the "Clean Your Jacket" day rap sheet free.
