What: Kitchen Dog Theater's Hooch & Pooch

Where: Jefferson Tower

The 411: Theater lovers donned their Mad Men best for this annual shindig, which this year carried the theme "Mod Dog." Event chair Rachel Chulew and her committee — Alexander Albritton, Hayden Bernstein, Kaitlyn Howell, and Jennifer Lind — staged a hip, midcentury modern environment where guests noshed and hobnobbed, sipping specialty Dripping Springs cocktails and grooving to the smooth sounds of crooner Max Vontaine (KDT company member Max Hartman).

Co-artistic directors Tina Parker and Christopher Carlos were on hand to oversee the sales of KDT's legendary "doggy bags," which contained everything from gift cards to event tickets. A raffle for a $1,000 Amazon gift card and a silent auction also helped rake in donations to the theater company, with items ranging from premium liquors and art to more tickets and even a sex-toy gift box.
