Puppies and Pastries

If you've ever purchased one of those "Porn for Women" wall calendars featuring hunky guys cooking, cleaning, and offering to share the remote, then "Real Men Bake for the Rescues" is your kind of event. Monday, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Sundy House (106 S. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach), about 30 local celebrities, all men, will offer up delicious baked goods for your judgment and the good of canines in need of homes. That's right: pastries and puppies. What more could you ask for, really? Sundy House will provide unlimited hors d'oeuvres in addition to the dozens of baked goodies competing to win the two-foot-tall trophy. Guests will be given a ticket at the door that they will bestow on the pastry that wins their best in show. Celebrity chefs include District 4 County Commissioner Chip La Marca; veterinarians Dr. Mickey Axelband and Dr. Dan Selvin; and Daniel Katzenberg, head chef and owner of Cafe Cocoanut Catering (424 Santa Fe Road, West Palm Beach). Tickets cost $15 in advance or $20 at the door. To purchase tickets or volunteer, call Sandra Dezelan Axelband at 954-588-7045, or visit dezzyssecondchance.com.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
