City Park Beer Fest Draws Canadians, Dogs


by Emma Boyce

Get off the couch and away from those sappy Sarah McLachlan commercials because this Saturday from noon to five City Park goes to the dogs!  For a third time, Bulldog partners with the LA/SPCA for their annual New Orleans on Tap Beer Festival and Fundraiser at the Big Lake Boathouse, featuring more than 200 brews.

Along with white knight and public meeting sarge, Mayor Mitch seems to be minting himself as master of who-will-blink-first negotiation.
