Dogs...At Happy Hour?

Dogs...At Happy Hour?

So, you just got out of work and want to hit up a happy hour to quench your thirst.

The cold beers and cocktails are calling your name, and you can’t wait to down a couple.

But then you realize that you have to go home and tend to your dog.  Well that kind of squashes the moment, doesn’t it?

Ah, but now, you can have your beer and your dog, too.

Every Tuesday evening from 7:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m., RIVERS at the Watergate will host a “Doggie Yappie Hour” on their patio(weather permitting).

In addition to specialty drinks like Peach Margaritas for $6, dogs will get to chow down on “special doggie treats”.
