Doggy Dining

NEW HAVEN (Connecticut, USA) – CHOW is one of the few bars where “You’re a dog” is less a rebuke than a mere statement of fact, reports the New York Times (6 June 2006).

Yes, the bar has a “Yappy Hour”, every Wednesday night, when patrons can bring their furry friends to join them for a bevvy.

On a related note, Central Florida News (and others) report that Florida Governor (and presidential sibling) Jeb Bush has signed the so-called Doggy Dining bill, enabling restauranteurs to allow dogs to join their owners in outdoor dining areas. Of course this has been common practice in many European contries for years but is surely a move in the right direction – although the introduction of the bill only marks the beginning of a three year pilot program.

Down, Spot – off the table!

We hope to add our own report to this topic soon by paying a visit to Melbourne’s My Dog Café and maybe even Peraz restaurant in Bowral (if Ita puts us up for the night and someone pays for our fuel!)
