Pause 4 Dinner June 14 

  A new citywide charitable dining event June 14 is really for the dogs — and the cats, and the hamsters and the other animals in need.

  It's called Pause 4 Dinner, and the event is a benefit for the Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (LA/SPCA), the private nonprofit that cares for so many abandoned and abused animals around our community. Getting involved is easy, since this fundraiser works by asking New Orleanians to do what they love to do anyway: dine out.

  Just have dinner at any of more than 40 participating restaurants on the evening of June 14 and order as usual. The restaurants have pledged to donate 20 percent of their dinner proceeds to the LA/SPCA. Diners pay nothing extra to help.

  Participating restaurants in Pause 4 Dinner are found all over the New Orleans area, and they range widely across the dining spectrum. So your contribution to the cause could be visiting Bud's Broiler (the City Park Avenue edition) for a quick hickory-sauce hot dog to support the dogs, or it could be a lavish feast in honor of felines at Bistro Daisy. The list includes taverns (the Bulldog), sushi bars (Rock-n-Sake), pizza (Mark Twain's Pizza Landing), newer restaurants (Dijon, the Irish House) and well-established favorites (Cafe Degas, Gautreau's Restaurant). See the complete list at www.la-spca.org/restaurants.
