Whether you’re a dog lover or a cat lover (or if you don’t love either but you do love beer), the third annual Beer for Beasts charity event should be at the top of your weekend plans list. The event is hosted by BeerAdvocate and Sixpoint Brewery, which will serve up dozens of unique and delicious beers for you to sample. While no pets are actually allowed at the event, all beer-drinking proceeds will go toward the loveable dogs and cats at the Humane Society of New York City. The night will also feature live music and comedy, as well as a variety of food samples from some of your favorite NYC spots, including Desi Truck and Pizza Moto.

Sat., April 6, 1 & 6 p.m., 2013
