Chicago Weekend: Valentine’s Day Hot Dog Bobbing, Small Dog Tea Party, & More

Word on the sidewalk is your dog’s love language is quality time, so the fur-fect V-Day gift’ll be a trip to any of these fun events this weekend!

Handmade Market Chicago (12 to 4 p.m., Saturday, February 8) This monthly market is back at The Empty Bottle with 30+ booths from local vendors that’ll live up to your dog’s taste. Chase away the winter blues with some re-tail therapy and then help order your number one some brunch bites to the bar from Bite Cafe next door.

8th Annual Valentine’s Day Party (1 to 4 p.m., Saturday, February 8) Bring your furry pal-entine to Bucktown Pub for some sweet fun for both of you like raffles, bobbing for hot dogs, and plenty of pets. Your $10 suggested donation gets you a goodie bag (while supplies last) and warm fuzzies about supporting Be Fido’s Friend. 

Valentine’s Day Dog Party (2 to 6 p.m., Saturday, February 8) Right Bee Cider Taproom’s dog party’ll feature a Valentine’s Day-themed photo opportunity for you and your pack, gourmet dog treats from Westside Paw Walkers, and cider for humans. 

Small Dog Tea Party (1 to 3 p.m., Sunday, February 9) Smol dogs rejoice, this one’s just for you! You and your teacup pup will be treated to tea service at The Drake Hotel during this Real Dog Moms of Chicago fluff-fair. The puparazzi’ll be out, so  your fascinators and bow ties. Ticket proceeds will benefit the Hinsdale Humane Society.

What’s shakin’ with your pup this weekend? Woof at us in the comments!
