Even prior to the County giving eateries the option to allow pets on their outdoor patios, THE AVENUE at White Marsh considered itself pet friendly. The tables in front of Starbucks or the Main Plaza by the fountain, have proven to be a great place to sit and watch the world go by with your dog at your side. While I have no scientific results to back this up, my observation has been that those visiting with their pet are among the most happy.
So, it was clear that when talks began about the viability of a dog park at Honeygo Run Regional Park we would incorporate some fundraising efforts into our events. During our Family Fun Day in May, we presented the Perry Paw Dog Park with a check for $3,000 on behalf of the merchants and management of the center. Additionally, the dog park organizers raised over $400 with a dunk tank at the event.
Next Thursday, July 12th, Red Brick Station & Brew Pub will host Barks & Beer with 10% of food sales donated to support the construction efforts of the park. The event will also include a caricature opportunity for $15 - which will be donated in its entirety. $2 Beers, exclusive appetizer specials, doggie bags courtesy of Spoiled Rotten K-9...plus, you get a night out with your dog! Reservations are required and can be made at the bar or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org (note Barks & Beer in the subject line).
We'll be expanding the patio area to make room for everyone and we hope to see you there! For more information and updates about Perry Paw Dog Park visit: www.perrypawdogpark.org or find them on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/PerryPawDogPark
