‘Yappy Hour’ ready to serve up some fun

Local businesses team up for Oct. 18 tailgate at Clayton’s

Blackbird’s Bowl and Bone-ifide Care will host “Yappy Hour” Thursday, Oct. 18, 2012 at Clayton’s Tap.

The fun takes place from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at 122 West Washington St. in downtown Morris. Admission is free.

Clayton’s Tap will fire up the grill for its “Tail-gate” party. Dinner is available for $5 per meal and includes the choice of a hamburger, brat or hotdog and chips. For your dog, participants can order them something right off the grill or order one of Blackbird’s Bowl’s Cupcakes.

Bentley’s Big Catch cupcakes are grain and gluten free and protein rich for the perfect meal replacement or treat. To wash down the food, bottles of beer will be $1.50 all night long. For your dog, Bowser Beer, a USA made beer for dogs, will be available for purchase at $5 per bottle.

“There’s nothing more fun than having a drink with your dog at Clayton’s Tap,” said Bonnie Latta of Bone-ifide Care, Inc. “This year, we are excited to have Blackbird’s Bowl join us to help make this the best Yappy Hour yet!”

Come “Wag Your Tail-Gate” at Clayton’s Tap for “Yappy Hour” hosted by Blackbird’s Bowl, Natural Pet Foods & More and Bone-ifide Care.

Please remember that all dogs must be on leash and BYOB (bring your own bowl).
