Get on your Hollywood glam!

We’re rolling out the red carpet again for our Acatemy Awards on October 21st! This year our event features Clawed, a live Chopped-style cocktail competition. Six local mixologists will compete through three rounds with mystery box items, but only one will claw their way to the top! (Click here to help us choose the ingredients!)

Guests will be able to purchase a flight of all the 1st round drinks to choose a People’s Choice winner. The winning drink will be available throughout the evening for purchase.

Pearlies, our Acatemy catuettes, will be awarded this year to local small and large businesses and an individual, each nominated for going above and beyond in service to the kitties.

Last, but definitely not least, we will have a live auction with some amazing items for your bidding pleasure. Check back for details on our goodies to come!

Tickets are $15 Early Bird and $20 after October 1. Your ticket includes heavy appetizers, a free drink ticket, and of course your very own set of handcrafted cat ears!
