The Fall Fur Fest location is Cherrity Bar, which is a unique concept where three featured charities compete for bar profits. Patrons vote with tokens, then 90% of the profit is divided in a 60/30/10% split between the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. No featured charity leaves empty handed. The provision selection is top-notch and cocktails are developed monthly to pair with featured charities. All Texas wines and spirits are available, as well as the house brand, A to Z.

The seating is family-friendly, and entertaining games are onsite for kids of all ages, as well as a “chill zone” for children with special needs who could use an occasional sensory break from the hustle and bustle of the venue. Plan to attend Fall Fur Fest on October 19 for fun for the whole family!
