Looking for the next doggy event in town? Well, your search stops here! Joining a recent string of successful events catering for our furry friends, including Sanctuary Cove's Paws & Pizzazz, Atticus Finch's Hair of the Dogs, and Shop4Pets' Fur Family Fun Day just to name a few, the newest pooch-centric event has just been announced - Bark & Brews. It's exactly what you think it is - everyone's two favourite things; dogs and beer!
Bark & Brews is hosted by The Brightside, a multi-purpose venue that has been providing a home for music fans in Brisbane since 2014 - and now, they're providing a home for crazy dog lovers through this amazing event. The Brightside is located in the heart of Fortitude Valley, on Warner Street. Ladies and gentlemen, get your diaries (or phone calendars) out, and save the date - this coming Sunday, April 9th 2017. Write it down in your diary, input it into your phone, or repeat it over and over in your head until you know the date off by heart - or do all three! The event kicks off at 2pm; get down early if you want to reserve a table.
Think of the event as a partnership between the host and its guests - in addition to beer (amongst other drinks, provided by The Brightside) and dogs (provided by wonderful pawrents like yourself!), there is also a range of other fun activities too, including a free doggie photo booth - snap a fun photo with your pooch using a prop (or two or three), or perhaps go one step further and bring along your own doggy costumes and outfits! Maybe you and your pooch could even wear matching outfits! Before you say I'm taking it a step too far, hear me out here - The Brightside will be hosting a 'Pooch and Owner Lookalike Competition'; there are prizes to be won! So come along for a great day of fun in a beer garden, holding a cold alcoholic beverage in one hand, and patting a dog with the other. Doesn't this all sound like a dream come true?
