Twin Cities: Three Things to Do With Your Dog this Weekend

A dinner date with your doggo is just what the dogtor ordered. (@stanleysbarroom via Instagram)

Ready to get out on the town this weekend? Here are a few bones we’re tossing out for you to catch:

Free Puppy Playtime (11 a.m. to 12 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 17) Meet up with other local pups and their people at Dreadlocks for Dingoes’ St. Paul location, where you can let the doggos play to their hearts’ content every Saturday—a perfect pre-Netflix-and-snuggle activity.

Pet Night With Santa (7:30 to 9:30 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 18) If you’re jonesin’ for a pet pic with St. Nick, Mall of America has just the solution at The Santa Experience on Level 1 outside Macy’s. Just make sure pupper is leashed and pup to date on vaccinations. (You can check out our full list of howliday photo ops, too.)

Heated + Tented Paw-tio at Stanley’s NE Bar Room (open 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays) Head over to Stanley’s for brunch, lunch, or dinner and let your pup order off the dog menu. The restaurant’s heated, covered patio is open as long as the windchill is above 10 degrees, and its “Pooched” Egg Brunch Bowl is drool-worthy. (Pssst! A gift card to a dog-friendly restaurant makes a wonderful gift for your pooch this holiday season. Check out our Minnesota Howliday Gift Guide for more ideas!)

Plan ahead: On Monday, Nov. 19, you can also paint a portrait of your pet at Lakes & Legends Brewing Co. This is also one of our Dog-Friendly Indoor Brewery Pass taprooms, so bring your artistic muse along for the fun.

What else is on your weekend agendog? Doo tell! (And don’t forget to submit all of your pup-centric events to our calendar.) Happy adventuring, Sidewalk Doggers!

Next up: Share all of your pup’s adventures with #SidewalkDog for the chance to be featured. Then head to our Dog-Friendly Twin Cities online community for super local, pooch-centric chat with the some of the best people we know dog people.

And since you clearly love being out and about with your doggo, you NEED our Dog-Friendly Passes! These puppies score ya FREE beer or wine on local patios and inside taprooms. Get your paws on ‘em today. (They make grrr-eat gifts, too!)
