From 2:30 to 6 p.m. today, Pooch Power Hour (or hours, as the case may be), a dog-friendly powwow where you can fatten your pup with complimentary housemade peanut butter pupcakes (and other doggone good snacks), premieres on the patio at Panzano, the Italian restaurant at 909 17th Street, in the Hotel Monaco. While your dog barks itself hoarse, you, the human, get to ham it up in the bar with happy-hour offerings from exec chef Elise Wiggins, paired with discounted beers, wines and cocktails.
If you miss the Pooch Power Hour tail-wag today, don't arf: It will continue every Sunday until further notice from Fido. For more info, go to www.panzano-denver.com

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
