GOLD COAST—Who's cuter: puppies, or Factor models sporting Armani? You can ogle both—and sip some complimentary cocktails—at the Chosen Man's Best Friend & Factor Felines event tomorrow. At the swanky Public Hotel at 1301 North State Parkway, the event takes place from 6 to 8pm and benefits the Anti-Cruelty Society. Expect models decked in Armani Exchange, a live DJ, a slide show of cuddly creatures in need, and passed canapés. Plus, these raffle prizes are hardly for the birds: you can score everything from a comped night at the Public Hotel to $1,000 cash. No need to call ahead: you can get your paws on the $20 tickets at the door.—Jenny Berg [RackedWire]
