There's a launch party for Margo’s Bark Root Beer tonight from 7:30-9:30 pm at The Larchmont Larder.

Bark Avenue will be on hand with some furry friends looking for a new home and Margo the dog herself will make a special appearance. The root beer grew out of Oscar Youd’s elementary school science fair project, and named after the family dog, 100% of the proceeds of the micro-brewed soda benefits shelter and rescue dog organizations.
