TONIGHT, Wednesday August 26th, 2009

What could be more fun than a night out with your pup? Come Celebrate Hump Day with Berea Animal Rescue and Second Hand Mutts.

What better way to get over the Hump than hanging out with celebrities and having a few cocktails, all while helping animals in need? Come to the Hump Day Celebrity Bartending Happy Hour to benefit theBerea Animal Rescue Fund (ARF) and Second Hand Mutts (SHM) at the Garage Bar in historic Ohio City. You can hang out with local celebrities and help rescued animals at the same time. All celebrity bartender tips go to help homeless animals at the two rescues; you can afford to be generous since there’s no cover charge!
