Sunday's Harbor Town Dog Show is open to all dogs. Any pooch, no matter how questionable his pedigree, can compete for the top prize in such categories as "Least Obedient" and "Best Tail Wagging."
What does this have to do with food? The event is a fund-raiser for the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby Country, and $20 gets you and your dog entry into its VIP area, where there will be a spread with food from Miss Cordelia's, Paulette's, Tug's, and the Terrace. One Smart Pet Food will be donating treats for the dogs.
The event is from noon to 4 p.m.
Tickets for the VIP room can be purchased here.
The Memphis Farmers Market annual Barnyard Ball at the Central Station Pavilion is Saturday, from 4 to 7 p.m. There will be plenty of food from area restaurants plus beer and wine, but I've got my eye on that cake walk.
Get your tickets here.
But wait, there's more ...
The Spellbound Halloween party, Halloween night, at the Madison Hotel will feature a Candy Corn Cocktail. It's Kahlua, Licor 43, butterscotch schnapps, half & half, and OJ.
Nearby at Felicia Suzanne's, also on Halloween, is the Zombies, Tacos, & Tunes. There will be $2 tacos, spooky cocktails, plus a costume contest, which is open to dogs.
On Saturday, starting at 1 p.m., Slider Inn will host Paws for a Cause, another event benefiting the Humane Society.
