Any time you can combine a good time with a good cause, it’s worth making a note on your calendar. The question is: Do you like open bars, great food, music, and company? And do you like cats?
If the answer to the second question is no, herewith our rebuttal, you monster:
That’s what we thought. Everybody likes cats.
If you answered yes to either question, we have good news for you: Caturday Night Live is this Saturday, March 11, at Northern Soul. What is Caturday Night Live? It’s a fundraiser for the incredible organization Jersey Cats, a 501(c)(3) volunteer, non-profit that looks after the felines in our state with spay/neuter programs and a tireless effort to bring strays in from the cold and adopt them out. Founded in 2010, they hold weekly adoptions at Hoboken Pet, by the way, and yes, you can donate directly to them.
Caturday Night’s All Right for Partying
If just donating seems kind of dull, though, stop on by Northern Soul between 6pm and 9pm on Saturday. For $50 at the door, you’ll get open bar, great music and company, Northern Soul’s fantastic menu, and plenty of door and raffle prizes donated by local businesses including Hound About Town, Milk Sugar Love, Hoboken Pet, The Brass Rail, Liberty Travel, Mad One Jacks Salon, Traveling Vineyard, and k9dergarten. Plus you’ll be able to sleep better that night knowing that you’ve helped an animal in need.
Did we mention the open bar? We’re pretty sure we did.
Northern Soul isn’t closed, by the way; your ticket will get you the open bar, but the pub’s open to the public otherwise, so Jersey Cats urges us all to show up and join in—you’ll still be eligible for the raffles. Is there a non-zero possibility you might go home to discover someone has slipped a kitten into your pockets? Yes. The chance is not zero.
