The first ever Party for the Pups to support the Puptown Dog Friendly Area (on the south end of Margate Park in Uptown, Lawrence Avenue at Marine Drive) is Thursday, August 29 from 6 to 9 p.m.. at Burkes Public House, 5401 N. Broadway. I will pop into the event to offer my support, so I hope you can come by. Supporting Dog Friendly Areas (DFA's) is important to me....I was involved in setting up the DFA's - Chicago's version of dog parks. Unfortunately, Puptown (like all Chicago DFA's) receives no funds from the city, so it's reliant on donations to support park maintenance and major initiatives.
This will be a fun event - attended by dog lovers. There will be an open bar, lots of appetizers and desserts.
