Bubba T and Jeremy Scott, owner of Tutta’s Pizza, are hosting an event to raise resources for Genesis Women’s Shelter. They’ll have half-price drinks for women and live music, all with their usual pizzas, wings and sandwiches. So if you love those wings as much as we do, go get them on this night that helps benefit others.

Any excuse to have a Mosaic is fine by us, and if the dogs can come along for the fun, even better. This Thursday, Community is partnering with Dallasites101 and Dallas Pets Alive for an event to support the pups and try some specialty beer tappings. Your ticket includes a $10 donation to Dallas Pets Alive plus two beers. Per usual, food trucks will be there and your dog’s welcome.

The vendor lineup includes Cel Sal, Flores Bakehaus, Que R!co T-Shirt Co., You and Mille, Terra Gal, Chicle, Dulce Dream Co., MediKate, Local Menace and TX. Chula.
