Yappy hours

After work happy hours have pretty much become a thing of the past since getting my dog. I feel bad enough leaving my dog all day when I’m at work, so leaving him for another two hours is pretty much out of the question.
Thank goodness for yappy hours! I feel much better about going out on a weekday when I can bring my dog. And added bonus – most of these yappy hours donate a portion of the proceeds to local animal rescue organizations.
Here are some of the ones that I’ve found, let me know if you know of any others (dogsinthecle@gmail.com).
Tremont tap house
The Tap House holds its yappy hour on the third Tuesday of every month from 4-9 pm. A dollar from every draft beer sold will be donated to PAWS and although they celebrate rain or shine, if it’s raining you may want to leave your dog at home as they’re not allowed inside.
Sunset Grille on Whiskey Island
Sunset Grille’s Yappy Hour, hosted by Q104’s own Average Joe, will be held on three Tuesdays this summer – June 25, July 23 and Aug. 6. All dogs must be on a leash. In addition to drink specials, Sunset Grille also provides treats for your dog.
The Winery at Wolf Creek
Throughout the summer The Winery at Wolf Creek will host Yappy Hours on the second Tuesday of each month from 5:00–8:00 p.m. on the lawn. Proceeds benefit GivePetsAChance. Tickets are $10 per person at the door and include a raffle entry, a glass of wine, and goodies for your dog ($5 per person for non-drinkers includes a soda or bottle of water).

Quaker Steak & Lube
This one is held every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., supporting the Lakewood Animal Shelter. So not only do you get to celebrate a rare weekend happy hour with drink and food specials, you get to contribute to a worthy cause!

Pet-Tique Summer Yappy Hour
This year’s summer yappy hour will be held Thursday, June 27 from 5:00-8:00pm at Pet-Tique in Lakewood.  Pets are welcome at the yappy hour which benefits Tails From The City, a non-profit, no-kill, all volunteer shelter. A $5 donation is suggested and beer, wine and food will be provided. A raffle will also be held to benefit the shelter.
