We like to take our dogs everywhere. On those lazy Sundays when we have no plans or chores, our day unfolds around places where dogs are welcome. This usually sets the groundwork for my favorite kind of day. A couple Sundays ago, there was lunch with friends on the rooftop patio of Monkey Wrench. Without asking, the bartender set a bowl of water under our table, before bringing us a round beers. Harold looked out over the railing, his ears pricked, watching bicycles and cars at the stop light. Mule lounged in the shade of my chair, mildly interested in the hoots from football fans on nearby bar stools. After lunch, we headed to the park with blankets, a cooler of snacks and drinks, and a stack of magazines to read. The dogs lazed in the sun. A friend showed up with a remote controlled airplane, and all eyes, human and canine, were fixed on the sky for the next hour. Harold was intent on capturing the strange bird that stole our attention.
Favorite places to drink with our dogs: Nach Bar (inside or out), Monkey Wrench rooftop bar, Frankfort Avenue Beer Depot, Louisville Slugger Field's Dog Day at the Park.

Right now, in fact, we're in the throws of Louisville's Craft Beer Week. One of the festivities I'm most stoked about is the Yappy Hour event at Apocalypse Brew Works tomorrow night. Gonna knock back a few in the company of dogs, then eat one of my favorite Grind burgers. Yip, yip!
