If an establishment allows dogs as patrons, I’m a regular. Often locals could find me with my girl Alpha at Cantina Marina on the Washington Harbor, or a hop, skip and jump away from home base at Larry’s Lounge for the Wednesday night Yappy Hour (Alpha get two frozen treats!). My pup is my family member and these warm days, I like to get her out and about when I can since I have to cut the extreme exercises short. Here are some other places to party with your pooch:
- Jackson 20, at the pet-friendly Hotel Monaco Hotel in Alexandria, has a doggie happy hour with drink specials for you and treats for fuzzball starting at 5pm in the courtyard with no cover.
- Jazz ip up with good boy Jack and the Peter Adelman Quarter at Tyrst on Tuesday (tonight!). The open windows allow you people watching and a close eye on the ground — I mean hound. =)
- And if Saturday’s find you eventless after your pups long morning walk, head to Union Pub on Capitol Hill where the happy hour begins at noon and ends at 4pm – the corn dog buckets, Dog Tail wine, and Flying Dog Tire Bite Golden Ale are sure to cure your nothing-else-to-do-today blues.
Its hot doggedy dog outside in the District. Beat the heat and soak up the sales at the 2009 Dog Days in MID City event at most retailers, galleries and venues around the area of 14th Street and U Street in Washington, DC. Download a map of the program here. See you there!
Save the date! Coming to my great city of Washington, DC this July 14th through the 16th, is the fifth annual Design DC 2009 architecture event!
Architects leading change will share with the creative public various education sessions, exhibitors, and tours. Sponsored by Deveroux & Parnell, Hickock Cole Architects, and Washington Gas, this event should appeal to anyone wanting to further their professional talents, business skills, networking circles and knowledge base of architectural practices.
Mark your calendars for May 14th. Don’t miss a a series of conversations, lectures, and events exploring the cutting-edge developments in the field of architecture and their impact on contemporary life as well as implications for the future. On May 14th, head to the Goethe-Institut New York on East 3rd Street to hear a talk by noted architect Prof. Werner Sobek, followed by a discussion moderated by Andres Lepik. As successor to architect Frei Otto and engineer Joerg Schlaich, Werner Sobek advocates a unique approach of bringing architects and engineers together, both during their training and in their professional activities.
