How do civic-minded carnivores save animals? By eating meat! Yes! You too can chow down on beef-filled tacos while luxuriating in your own benevolence as you hurl money at Shih Tzu Rescue Inc. a fine bunch of people who really, really care about oddly coifed Asian dogs. The deal is this: head to Azteca Real Mexican Restaurant (8800 State Road 84, Davie) between 4 and 8 p.m. today, pay the Rescuers $45 (or $35, if you pay in advance), and gorge yourself on free Mexican food, free booze-less libations, specially priced cocktails, and live music. Somewhere, a dog will be saved. Somewhere else, a cow will die a miserable, screaming death. This whole thing is a lot like fighting for peace, singing for silence, and fucking for chastity but a whole lot yummier! Visit www.shihtzurescue.org.
