    Shred It!

    According to IdentityTheft.org, fraud and identity theft cases have nearly tripled over the last decade. One way to protect yourself from such a fate is to shred sensitive documents you no longer need, and Frost Bank comes in clutch with professional shredding services that can knock out up to 10 boxes or bags of yours – for free! With your busy lifestyle, you don’t have time to feed paper to a shredder all day, so let Shred-It do that for you. But just paper, OK? And no moldy or wet stuff. Or X-rays, pill bottles, CDs … you get the idea. – Kat McNevins

    Pup Crawl

    If dogs could drink, what would be their tipple of choice? My guess: a cold brewski on a good day, but a frozen daiquiri when they’ve had a tough one. Now, dogs cannot actually drink alcohol – not even Spuds MacKenzie – but you can sup for the pups by purchasing a Pawsport from Austin Humane Society. By dropping a crisp $25, you’ll be able to bring your dog along to Dog House Drinkery, MUTTS Canine Cantina Austin, Yard Bar, or the Watering Bowl, where they can run about an on-site dog park and you can get a free drink. Each bar earns you a Pawsport stamp, and all four stamps get you entered in pawsome prize giveaways. It’s no dog-safe daiquiri, but it’ll do until the science is there. – James Scott
