Eating Well While Stirring the Stewpot and Being Kind to Animals

Good things come in threes. This week, two benefits are going strong in their third year, benefiting humans on down to their companions. For some great food and feel-good, check out what's going on this week.

The Cause: The Stewpot Alliance The Place: Union Station Tuesday's Third Annual Soups' On! Benefit Luncheon will feature 10 Dallas chefs serving their signature soups. The "Creating a Vision of Leadership" event will begin at 11 a.m. and feature a reception, silent auction, and speaker Morton H. Meyerson.

The Cause: Operation Kindness The Place: Duke's Original Roadhouse Operation Kindness is holding its Third Annual Bark n' Beer benefit from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on January 29. The event features live music, appetizers, goodie bags and a variety of dog-themed beer (Flying Dog, Rhar's Ugly Pug, etc.). Unfortunately, health regulations prohibit the pets of honor, so Fido and Fluffy can't come inside. The event is $25 and for attendees 21 and up.
