A Very Puggy Holiday Potluck

Join us at our home away from home, Chicago Party Animals, for food, fun and festivities. We'll be sharing our favorite recipes as we watch the pugs romp and rumble.

Bring one of your favorite dishes to share. Admission will be $10 per adult person plus a dish. Please let me know what you will be bringing when you respond. I will update the comments periodically, so check to see what others are bringing. This helps us to better balance the sweets and savories. Parking is free and easy on a Sunday afternoon.

Santa will be joining us, so be sure to bring your camera for pictures with Santa.

The holidays are hectic. Come and relax with us for a couple of hours.

We hope to see you there!

Chris, Dee Dee and Stuey

Laura and Grant
