Sunday Funday usually feels kind of fuzzy, but this time it's for a hell of a more interesting, yippy reason. It's time for Cocina 214's annual Running of the Chihuahuas event, where 100 tiny furballs race for glory (or treats?) to benefit Winter Park Lost Pets and A Cause 4 Paws Rescue. Spectators can look on – margarita in hand, of course – for free, or you can enter your puny pup in the race for a fee. DJ Guij performs, offering up some motivational music for the tiny racers, and a Tito's photobooth offers photos for proud dog moms and dads to take with their pooch pre- and post-race. Think you might need some liquid courage to cheer your pup on? The outside bar provides numerous drink specials. Oh, and did we forget to mention that there's a Patrón tequila sampling? This will definitely be a day to go off-leash – you, not the dog.
