4 Things to Do With Your Dog This Weekend in Chicago

Ruh roh–you feel that? Cold weather’s creeping in. November is here but there’s still paw-lenty to keep you two occupied. Get out while the gettin’ out is still good with this weekend’s doggy dates.

Beers & Barks (6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, November 9) Attention puppers of the Southwest side: your very first dog park is ready to party! Head to Co-Prosperity Sphere to pump up the jams in support of McKinley Dog Park. Join the rest of the crazy dogs (and crazy dog people) for a night of beer, tacos, and celebrations. There’ll be sweet raffles, a photobooth, and a DJ… so your pal can prove herself once and for all despite her two left feet.

Rounds n’ Hounds (12 to 5 p.m. Sunday, November 10) Pup yeah–Midwest Coast Brewing and One Tail at a Time have teamed up for the first-ever adoption event, beer debut, and fundraiser (yep, three fur one)! Midwest Coast is rollin’ out freshly-brewed Old Girl, a tribute to the owner’s senior rescue pup created especially with input from the OTAT volunteer crew. Adoptable buddies will be in attendance to sniff and be sniffed, too. 

Glen Ellyn + River North Holiday Photos with Fetch Portraits (12 to 3 p.m. Saturday, November 9 in Glen Ellyn and 12 to 3 p.m. Sunday, November 10 in River North) Okay, we know you still haven’t even put away your couples costumes or thrown out your pug-kins yet, but hear us out. Get your howliday photos done this weekend and your Christmas cards are set. And your gifts. And probably your future tattoos, if you’re like us. The mother puppin’ photo experts from Fetch’ll be taking shots of your dog, your bunny…heck, even your human child at Kriser’s in Glen Ellyn and River North this weekend. Be sure to book your sesh for a one-of-a-kind photo that you’ll show your granddogs some day.

Holiday Glamour Shot Pop-Up (12 to 5 p.m. Sunday, November 10) Mandy Dempsey Photography, Fix Hair Studio, and dog groomer Mick Stone (@the_barkers_barber) have assembled as the ultimate human-doggo glam team. You get styled by a pro from Fix Hair, and your dog glows up with accessories and color air brush by the groomer before you step in front of the camera to document the one time your both brushed your hair on the same day. Proceeds go to Alive Rescue. Grab your appointment and get ready to werk. Yaaas!
