COURT SQUARE — A wine store in Queens will raise a glass to Fido on Friday.

SquareWine and Spirits in Long Island City is throwing its second annual "Puppy Party," where residents are encouraged to bring their pooches for an evening of drinks and treats, for pets and owners alike.

Goodies for humans will include wine and whiskey tastings and hors d'oeuvres, as well as dessert from local bakers The Written Cupcake, who will serve special dog-themed cupcakes, like a "101 Dalmatians" with chocolate and vanilla swirled batter.

Pups will be able to indulge in a "doggy treat buffet" featuring a medley of pooch snacks.

The celebration is to raise money for charity, with proceeds going to the Humane Society and the New York-based animal advocacy nonprofit Positive Tails.

The Puppy Party at Square Wine and Spirits will take place Friday, Sept. 20 from 5 to 8 p.m. at 24-20 Jackson Ave. in Long Island City. Admission is free.
