When I saw the listing for an event called "Hooch and Pooch" by a group called "Kitchen Dog," I naturally assumed it would en-tail (get it?) eating and drinking with canine companions. What could be better than sharing biscuits and "apple-tinis" with Buster? Imagine my surprise when I found out that Kitchen Dog is a theater company, and Hooch and Pooch is its wittily named annual fundraiser. I suppose there's something to be said for a night of drinking, dancing, karaoke, silent auctions and mystery prizes. It doesn't beat taking my dog to a dance party (he's just perfected his cabbage patch), but it does help fund a socially conscientious theater group with a sense of humor. Hooch and Pooch 2006 takes place at 8 p.m. at The McKinney Avenue Contemporary, 3120 McKinney Ave. Tickets are $75 ($85 if purchased at the door). Call 214-953-1055 or visit www.kitchendogtheater.org.
Sat., Jan. 28, 8:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m.
