Hamden Animal Shelter

As some of you may know, Hamden Animal Control was recently asked to permanently vacate the North Haven Animal Shelter. In the lead-up to this May 1st deadline, Gimme Shelter will be having an Animal Shelter Restaurant Month during April.

Six unaffiliated restaurants are joining forces to support Hamden's Animal Shelter Gift Fund. They are:
JaSa Asian Cuisine
Le Petit Gourmet
The Playwright Irish Pub
Cafe Ibiza Tapas & Wine Bar
Aunt Chilada's Mexican Restaurant
Cafe Amici Italian Ristorante

We segmented the month into 3 events before Holy Week, and 3 events after. Each segment will feature an entertainment act (mo cover). The performers are:
Ralph Santoro on solo acoustic guitar at The Playwright on Thursday, April 11th.
Jon & Don from Creamery Station playing on the deck* at Aunt Chilada's, overlooking Sleeping Giant Mountain, on Thursday, April 25th. *(in the event of rain, music will be upstairs in the Cantina.)

To participate: just go to the restaurant(s) of your choice on their corresponding day. Order any beverages, appetizers, entrees or even take-out; then present the event flier with your payment. The restaurant will then donate 20% of your pre-taxed bill to Hamden's Animal Shelter Gift Fund. (100% of the restaurant's proceeds go directly into the fund.) Event fliers may be downloaded at http://www.*****/****

Besides the six participating restaurants, additional merchants are supporting this endeavor with donations/events of their own. They are:
Legal Grounds, local dog-friendly coffee shoppe
Mikro, Beer Bar & Gastro Pub
Mount Carmel Veterinary Hospital
Framed, affordable custom framing
The Barking Lot, dog daycare & boarding
Merryfield Veterinary Hospital
Books & Company, your neighborhood used books, cards & gift store
Spring Glen Veterinary Clinic
Paws 'N Effect, canine training center

Note: Everything on this page came together in just 3 weeks since the news broke. This is a testament to the community-minded merchants & musicians mentioned above, as well as the overall enthusiasm for this project. We would appreciate traction that you can give this event.

Jimmy Kerrigan, Class of '76

There will be a fundraiser for Jimmy Kerrigan, formerly of Manor Street in Hamden, on February 2nd. Jimmy recently lost his home & possessions during the Camp Fire that destroyed his town of Paradise, CA. The event will be at Aunt Chilada's Mexican Restaurant in Hamden.The beauty here is that all we need people to do, is to show up. The restaurant will make the donation.
There are two ways to participate. Order in the restaurant (or take-out) after 4:00, on Feb 2nd. Present the event flier with your payment, and Aunt Chilada's will donate 15% of your pre-taxed bill to the Paradise, CA, Camp Fire Fund on Go Fund Me. That account was set up and administered by Melissa Willis, to help Jimmy. You may view the account though the following link:


If you come upstairs to the Cantina, no flier is needed. Whether you order a beverage, an appetizer, and/or dinner, 15% of all pre-taxed sales benefit the same account. For those of you who were around (and can still remember) 30 years ago, Ralph Santoro has agreed to once again strap on his acoustic guitar and join Robbie G for an acoustic dinner set. That will be from 4:30 to 5:30. For those who still like to dance, Ralph will trade the acoustic guitar for his 6-string bass to join the Rob Glassman Band as they play two sets from 6 to 8:30. There is no cover so please consider coming out to see old friends and start the new year right with some unselfish kindness for those in need. Above all else, take a moment to be grateful that we are the fortunate ones to be on giving end of this goodwill!
