What do poodles and pilsners have in common? Nothing, really—but this St. Paddy’s Day you can enjoy both in support of two local charities.
You and Fido can start the celebrations early by joining DOGood Chattanooga’s 5th annual St. PAWtrick’s Day Walk and Yappy Hour on Saturday, Mar. 15, in support of “keeping Chattanooga clean, green, and dog friendly.”
The walk begins at Renaissance Park by the Pavilion at 10 a.m. and will conclude at Whole Foods for Yappy Hour from 1 – 3 p.m., with fresh-baked dog treats from Bone Apetit. The “pups and their people” in the best green ensembles will win prizes, so be sure you and your dog are dressed to impress. For more information, visit facebook.com/groups/dogoodchatt.
After dropping the canines off at home, continue your celebrations with the St. Paddy’s Pub Crawl, hosted by ChattaCrawl in benefit of the Northside Neighborhood House. You already planned an evening of libations in observance of St. Patrick’s Day, so why not drink for charity?
Tickets are $25 and include “St. Paddy’s swag,” free entry (no cover charge) and a $5 gift card to each participating pub (Flying Squirrel, Terminal Brewhouse, The Social, and Honest Pint), free entry (no cover charge) to the St. Patty’s Patten Parkway Block Party, and a 10-percent-off coupon for the Northside Neighborhood House Thrift Store.
To top it off, participants will be able to enter a drawing to win the Pot O’ Gold at the Patten Parkway Block Party.
The crawl will begin at 5 p.m. at Patten Parkway. For tickets and more information regarding the event, visit chattacrawl.com. For more information about Northside Neighborhood House, visit nnhouse.org.
