Wed update: Dog show, where to watch hockey and other news

A week from Saturday, November 2, is the annual Harbor Town Dog Show at Nursery Park in Harbor Town. The event is sponsored by Downtown Animal Hospital. This year’s show has a disco theme and there will be a “Doggie Disco Dance Off”. Other categories include least obedient, most glamorous, best rescue dog, most original costume, and best float. For $45 you can enter your dog in two categories. Spectators may attend for free or pay $20 to be in a VIP area with gourmet food and drink.

The Friends of the Library fall book sale is this week at the main library, 3030 Poplar.

If you’re a hockey fan and you’re looking for a place Downtown to watch, Kooky Canuck has the NHL Centre Ice package. Just ask the bartender to switch to your game on one of the many TVs above the bar.

This basketball season, the FedExForum will have three fewer suites, but that space will be converted into theater boxes which are sort of a halfway point between club box seat and suite.

The Grizzlies, by the way, have a pre-season game against the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight at the FedExForum at 7. Expect heavy traffic Downtown.

That’s the news for now. Time to run up to the Kroger at the top of the hill from where I work and get some cold cuts. I’ll be out at the usual spots after work.
