PROJECT HALO BENEFIT
You can sit on a patio for Sunday Funday anytime; this week’s Sunday Funday is at the Double Door. Hear some great music and help out a no-kill animal shelter while you’re at it. Project (HALO) is the beneficiary here while the lineup includes The Lenny Federal Band, Toleman Randall, Mike Strauss Band, Leadville Social Club, and Dead Cat. For once, you can go home knowing you helped some furry friends while you were tying one on. (Jeff Hahne)
