Independence Day Shenanigans

By Chris

So, hey… whatcha doin’ on the 4th? Having friends and fam over for a barbecue? Heading out for a picnic and some fireworks? Here’s a suggestion for an event that welcomes your pups (and doesn’t involve fireworks for the skittish ones). An important note: Dogs are NOT allowed at Pops on the River at the River Market, so don’t try to take them there.

Best Impressions4th of July Cookout at Best Impressions (the restaurant at the Arkansas Arts Center)

Grab some grub and beer from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. For $12 for adults and $7 for kids, you can get your choice of of a burger, brat, hot dog or chicken breast, grilled to order. The accoutrement buffet includes condiments, baked beans, potato salad, dessert and your choice of tea or lemonade.

Draft Beer $2
Soft Drinks $2.25
Bottled Beer $3
Wine $4

Their regular menu will NOT be available for cookout celebration, but guess what? Your four-legged friend is welcome on their patio and when you’re done feeding your face, you can head over to the dog park.

This was a new restaurant to add to our dining map, so thanks to our friend Ashli for bringing it to our attention!

Let us know below in the comments if you’re aware of any other local celebrations or events that permit dogs. We’ll be happy to update the post to feature them!
