Feasting for Fido

On Thursday night, Karis, her friend Jen and I went to Feasting for Fido at the Milwaukee Humane Society.

We paid $50 in advance for our tickets (they were $60 at the door) and they included unlimited wine and water, two tickets for beer and/or soda and all the samples of delicious vegetarian foods and desserts you wanted.

Restaurants that offered samples included: Blue's Egg, Cafe Manna, Cafe Perrin, Honey Pie Cafe, Juniper 61, Le Reve, Tess, Sven's European Cafe, Ristorante Bartolotta, Simma's Bakery, The Fast Foodie, The Green Kitchen, The Rumpus Room, Zaffiro's Pizzeria and Bar, Umami Moto, Meritage, Mr. B's and Maxie's Southern Comfort.

The event took place indoors and outdoors. After trying some Stone's Throw winery Merlot, we headed inside to check out the eats and the animals.

Le Reve was offering an array of beautiful and appetizing desserts.

I chose this passion fruit one and it was to die for!

If I could have chosen two kittens to bring home with me, it would have been these two guys (or girls). I have a thing for gray and white kitties with blue eyes, especially when they look this adorable sleeping.

I am definitely a cat person. The dogs were adorable, but I melt when I see the kittens or even the really fat cat available for adoption.

Outside, we found the eventual winner of best food sample, Meritage. I really enjoyed their watermelon, strawberry and feta salad.


Cafe Manna had some of my favorites available--limonade, a lentil burger and they had bone shaped cookies for humans!

We all ended the evening with beers. Karis and I tried the Hinterland Door County Cherry Wheat and it was tasty! Jen had the Glacial Trail IPA.


I'm so grateful to Karis for asking if I wanted to go to this event! I really loved everything about it--giving money to help animals, the vegetarian food and the setup.


Up next is a Feasting for Felix at the Ozaukee campus on August 9th. I think we'll attend that one next year!


  1. Fun! I went a few years ago with my mom. We had a great time.

  2. What a neat event!! Looks like a lot of fun.

  3. I adopted my pup from the MKE WI Humane Society - if I still lived in MKE I would be attending that event. I've always heard great things about it!

  4. Can't wait to go again next year!
