The kids are back in school and the dog days are upon us. And, in Chicago, dining out has gone to the dogs for at least one week. From Sunday, September 7 through 13 One Tail at a Time kicks-off its inaugural Dog Restaurant Week that will give you a chance to try out some of the city’s dog-friendly patios while helping out the rescue.
Here’s how Dog Restaurant Week works. Dine out on the patio at one of the Chicago restaurants below. That restaurant will donate a percentage of your meal ticket for the programs at One Tail at a Time. All of these patios are dog-friendly. So, you can dine out with your pooch and help pooches in need at the same time.
South Water Kitchen, 225 N. Wabash
- Deuce’s and the Diamond Club, 3505 N. Clark
- Wishbone West Loop, 1001 W. Washington
- Via Veneto, 6340 N. Lincoln
- Harmony Grill, 3159 N. Southport
Last year, One Tail at a Time found homes for over 200 dogs that it rescued from euthanasia. The organization also held both Spring and Fall Community Pet Days that reached out to many pet owner sin Chicago by providing vaccinations, education and spay and neuter vouchers to pet owners. OTAT holds humane education programs in local schools. OTAT also traveled to Oklahoma last year to help with pet rescue efforts after the Moore, OK tornado. (Follow up story.)
