Show Dogs Raising Green for the Tenderloin's Very Own Forest

A forest grows in the T-Loin.
​If the phrase "national forest" brings to mind places with towering redwoods, think again. City dwellers can find their very own, admittedly small, forest in one of the most diverse and densely populated neighborhoods, the Tenderloin. It's called the Tenderloin National Forest (TNF), and it's located in Cohen Alley, off Ellis, designed as a green preserve for chilling out in.

Tenderloin sausage slinger Show Dogs is raising funds for TNF next month, throwing a two-hour party June 10. A $20 ticket yields mini versions of the house specialties (onion rings, mini corn dogs, pigs in a blanket). Beer on tap (PBR, Speakeasy Prohibition Ale, and Black Butte Porter) and live music will also be part of the down-home forest fĂȘte. Details after the jump.

Show Dogs Spring Celebration Benefit for the Tenderloin National Forest
When: Thurs., June 10, 6-8 p.m.
Where: Show Dogs, 1020 Market (at Golden Gate)
Cost: $20; pay at the door
