Drink pumpkin beer from a pumpkin

The annual ritual of turning a 200-lb pumpkin into a keg returns, and this year your dog is invited, with prizes for best costumes. A $10 ticket, though not required, scores you a keepsake glass and a beer, and half the proceeds will be donated to Morris Animal Refuge. In addition to the Dogfish Punkin in the gourd, more than 25 pumpkin beers will be on tap. Eagles on the TV, too.

Where: City Tap House University City at 3925 Walnut St. 19104

When: October 8, 2017 from 11:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.
