Ruff Canine Club Halloween Birthday Party
October 29

Full Disclaimer I don’t have a dog so I haven’t been to Ruff and if I’m being totally honest, if I had a dog I’m unlikely to go. I certainly haven’t heard bad things about this place so if you have a dog maybe named Spot it could be a fun time on a Saturday.

Ruff is celebrating its 1st birthday! Come celebrate with us! From 12 to 4 MMG Photo Booth will be in Ruff so you can take pictures of you and your pup or your friends at home! Free Clementines Bakery treats for the first 50 dogs to enter the park. Howl-o-ween costume contest at 3 p.m. with a chance to win an annual subscription to Ruff.

A sad bit of news, Molly’s Bike Shop which hosts Blind Dog Brewery has closed the brewery. He could also close the bike shop, but hard to say. It was a nice little brewery and although it was too far for me to go often, I’m sad to see it go.

Now for a bit of legal news.

VCU faces backlash over college-branded beer – ABC8

VCU has long banned its brand from appearing on alcoholic beverages as part of university policy, but in May President Michael Rao instituted interim rules allowing branded beer for the first time since at least 2013. Now , Hardywood and the VCU Alumni Association plan to sell VCU-branded beer starting Oct. 26.

However, according to Everett Carpenter, president of the VCU chapter of the American Association of University Teachers, the policy change that enabled this branding has already been voted down by a faculty committee supposed to oversee university policy.

“The proposed changes were unanimously rejected,” Carpenter wrote in an open letter to Rao. “This action violates the spirit of governance shared with your VCU colleagues.”
