Best Event for Animal Lovers
CRITICS, UPSTATE | Muttini Mixers
The Muttini Mixer, a pup-friendly event curated by the Delaware Humane Association, is an opportunity for animal lovers to let their hair down for a good cause. The 2010 event, held in April, raised $14,000 for Delaware Humane, and featured martini-shaped doggie biscuits and water dishes for humans and fuzzy companions alike (although the people drinks had decidedly more alcohol in them). A live auction and entertainment from local legend Sean “Sinatra” Reilly helped the Muttini sippers party into the night.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Greyhounds Reach the Beach
In the summer of 1995, 85 people (and 65 dogs) converged on Dewey Beach. That initial gathering has since evolved into Greyhounds Reach the Beach, held yearly during the weekend before Columbus Day (October 9-10). By 2009 the event had grown to such proportions, many “official” aspects of Reach the Beach were eliminated, but greyhound owners still flocked to Dewey to relax, mingle with other greyhound owners and spend time with their favorite pooches.
