Pupdate: We chatted about this issue on WCCO [scroll down to watch] and in the Star Tribune.
Twin Cities dog lovers are fortunate to enjoy tons o’ dog-friendly businesses, including a huge number of restaurant, brewery, and coffee shop patios. The key word here is ‘patios’ — technically, it’s not legal for Minneapolis breweries and coffee shops to allow dogs inside, even when they don’t prepare food on the premises.
Under the radar, however, some local breweries have been giving well-behaved dogs a pass — in doing so; they risk getting a slap on the wrist (or worse) from the Health Depawtment. Ow! We need that wrist for all this delicious sipping!
So it was music to our pup-loving ears when we heard this week that the City of Minneapolis is considering lifting the ban on dogs inside some breweries and coffee shops. They need to hear from you, so here’s your action plan:
