I admit it. We suck. We failed last year. It just got so damned hot so quickly that we really didn’t take Roxanne to many patios at all. This year will be different! We promise.
Starting off, we’ve added and removed some restaurants from our map and list page. Sadly, a couple of dog-friendly restaurants have shut their doors; however, many more have opened to take their place.
So far this year, we’ve taken Roxanne to one of our new favorites: Diamond Bear Alehouse and our long-time neighbor, Dugan’s Pub (always! They’re right across the street). Both places are exceedingly canine friendly and will bring out water bowls without being asked.
Last night I had drinks with a couple of girlfriends on the patio of one of our newest additions, Samantha’s Tap Room and Wood Grill on Main Street in downtown Little Rock. We asked our very awesome waiter if their patio is dog friendly. He checked it out, and yes! They are! Meanwhile Marie Bruno, of Bruno’s Little Italy, stopped by to chat and we asked her about their patio, which is right next door to Samantha’s. She confirmed that dogs are more than welcome there as well.
YAY! More places to stop and grab a cold one and some delicious food with your beast. We’ll be taking Roxanne to check ’em out, so stay tuned.
