When was the last time you could party with your dog and make sauerkraut in the same day?  

For an outdoor show: Making ballet attainable to boardwalkers, the Atlantic City Ballet takes to Kennedy Plaza on the Atlantic City Boardwalk at 5 p.m. to show off seldom-seen moves in fresh air — for free.

For socialite pups: All dogs go to the bar. Well, at least that’s true at this “yappy hour” at Loews Philadelphia Hotel where dogs can feast on the hotel’s dog cuisine and take part in a best-dressed dog contest. Two-legged attendees can sip on cocktails and munch on appetizers. The event runs from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Center City hotel.

For fermentation: Weavers Way at W.B. Saul High School is holding an intro to sauerkraut-making session in Roxborough at 6 p.m. where you’ll learn about flavoring and textures as well as get to take home your own small jar.

For a Fringe Festival preview: Ahead of director Romeo Castellucci’s Presented Fringe Festival piece “The Four Seasons Restaurant,” learn about the artist via film excerpts from his work and analysis from Yale professor Tom Sellar at 7:30 p.m. at FringeArts on Columbus Boulevard.

For jazz tunes: A medley of hits from Fats Waller and other jazz musicians of the ‘20s and ‘30s make up “Ain’t Misbehavin,’” sure to keep you on your best behavior. Curtains are at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, Pa.
