Sick of sitting at home watching the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show every year? Us, too (our roommates don't appreciate all the howling).
Well, there's another option: the 4th Annual "Best In Show" benefit, hosted this year at Fat Cat in Uptown. For $50 (VIP tables are $250 for four guests), you get an open bar and some adult-style treats. The event benefits the Sit, Stay and Read Organization, which helps Chicago inner-city children learn to read with the help of dogs. So head out on February 10 to watch the show and help out a good cause - you might even find some new members for your Kennel Club fantasy league. For tickets, call (773) 545-6629 or email info at sitstayread.org.
