Galaxy Drive-In hosting buffet and costume contest - for dogs

Pardon us, we were just looking for an excuse to post a pic of a dog in a costume.

My favorite Halloween costume for a dog was when a friend of mine wrapped up her pug in a sheet -- draping some of of it up over his head -- threw him in the basket on the front of her bike, and called him E.T. Hilarious perfection! There's just something about animals in Halloween costumes, looking all defeated and humiliated.

Galaxy Drive-In in St. Louis Park is offering the chance to view some tortured canines up close and personal tonight at its "Galaxy Doggie Dinner & Halloween Doggie Costume Contest," which includes a buffet of burgers, chicken sandos, cheese curds "and much more" as well as "doggie burgers, bones, corn muffins and doggie ice cream cones" for the poor pets. 6 - 8 p.m. $20/adults, $10/kids under 12.

Some last-minute costume ideas.
