From spooky spaniels to wicked Whippets, the Twin Cities is chock-full of wag-worthy Halloween events this month (and we know you couldn’t resist that dog costume at Target). Here are five spots to costume up with your pup.
Howl-O-Ween at Bent Brewstillery
Sunday, Oct. 14, 12 to 6 p.m.
Tip one back with Sidewalk Dog at Bent Brewstillery in Roseville for the brewery’s second annual Howl-O-Ween. Bent and Chuck & Don’s are hosting a dog-centric pop up market with all the stops and we are so here for it.

Be doggone ready: all pups who come in costume will be entered in a contest. We’ll also be selling our brand spankin’ NEW Dog-Friendly Indoor Brewery Pass there! But if you can’t wait to get your paws on one you can order your Pass online for $5 off right this minute.
