Here's something I wish I had thought of, a happy hour for dogs.
In Philadelphia, a group of dog lovers have gotten together with different restaurants to organize “Yappy Hour” events for customers with dogs.
The first event was held at Bainbridge Street Barrel House and the dogs enjoyed homemade treats created by the kitchen staff, while the owners hung out, shared neighborhood gossip, and met adoptable animals.
The group organizing all the fun – Queen Village K9 – will organize about a half-dozen other Yappy Hours this year at other dog-friendly bars and restaurants to raise awareness and money for a local dog park.
With these Yappy Hours, Queen Village K9 hopes to continue to build a community of dog lovers who share the challenge of caring for dogs in the big city.
I've been known to frequent happy hour with some dogs in the past, but they weren't the four legged variety. Maybe it's time to resort to man's best friend for some refreshing fun this week....
