Yes, these dog days of summer are definitely dragging on, aren’t they? The assortment of stores at La Plaza Shoppes, at Tanque Verde near Grant Road, plans to lift those sweaty spirits with a party 5-9 p.m. today.

The Plaza — home to spots like Posh Boutique, Embellish Home Etc., A Fine Line Stationery & Gift Boutique and Creative Juice, among others — will feature art, entertainers, wine tastings and nibbles and even take-home projects.

The plaza is also collecting donations and items for animal rescue group, Pima Paws for Life.
