Okay, this isn't a "furries" event, you pervs. It's Monkeyhouse Toys & Art Gallery's 4th annual handmade plush and doll show where you'll find 20+ fabric artists from all over will be showing off their skills, with a special exclusive collaboration set of plush and art books by Josh Taylor and ip2much. Tonight is the opening night shindig from 4-8 p.m. and plush can be purchased and taken home after the reception tonight.

Freshlunches is a program that provides nutritious and fun meals for students PK-12, using hormone- and antibiotic-free meats and organic fruits and vegetables whenever possible.
