The rescue dogs do not carry little casks of brandy around their necks, but they really should.

What are you doing on Saturday night? Do you enjoy a mountain? What about spaghetti and garlic bread and salad? And some live bands? How about rugged outdoorsy types? You like these things? Preferably all of the latter atop the former? Here is the party for you. It's BYOB (and BYO-designated-driver; the organizers have been urged to get a bus for next year).

Bonus: This mountaintop shindig benefits the Alpental Volunteer Ski Patrol and BARK teams, which means the members of the former will be there, all rugged and outdoorsy, while the latter are those dogs that dig people out of avalanches.
