Doggy Happy Hour

Locals and their canine companions can relax on the Helix Lounge’s spacious outdoor patio while enjoying Doggy Happy Hour with special prices on cocktails and food, while pets enjoy free treats and time to socialize. The pet-friendly happy hour, which will benefit the Shaw Dog Park, will take place every Wednesday from 5 pm to 7 pm. Offerings for humans include:

· Coco’s Cosmo –Vodka, Triple Sec, Lime and Cranberry, $5

· Mollie’s Ale – Ice Cold Yuengling Lager, $3

· Ginger’s Juice – Crisp Pinot Grigio, $5

· Dogs can enjoy Filtered Ice Water and Assorted Dog Treats.

One dollar from each specialty drink purchase will be donated to Shaw Dog Park for future projects, maintenance, and general upkeep. The Doggy Happy Hour specials are available in addition to Helix Lounge’s nightly happy hour specials, which include half-price burgers and $3 Yeungling bottles and PBR cans, from 5pm to 7pm.

Helix is located at 1430 Rhode Island Ave, NW.

    I love this idea.

  • They’ve been doing this for a while now.

    George K., who “runs” the Shaw dog park is an awesome awesome guy. I’m amazed when people are so generous with their time to make a neighborhood better and never seem to ask for anything in return. I am sure he is somehow involved with helping this happen.

    • Jerry Grundle

      He really loves dogs. And it shows. Such a wonderful idea.

      • I think he loves my dog more than I do!

        He’s put up with so much crap (the whole insane dog walker business a couple of years back was unbelievable) and yet continues to be a really happy, easygoing guy.

        I’m convinced he’s part of the reason the Shaw dog park isn’t as full of nutjobs as the Dupont-area dog walk is. He somehow diffuses the nuttiness.

  • is ernie attending?

      I will attend every doggie happy hour that Ernie attends. I tip well, so bartenders it’s in your best interest to get Ernie there.

      • Can’t go tonight but maybe sometime soon!

        • Emmaleigh504

          Will you let us know? You can say it in code, so all of Popville doesn’t show up, something like, “hey Emily, Ernie’s going to the doggy happy hour, I’ll save you a seat,” would be perfect.

  • The Washington Humane Society has also done adoption events at Helix’s doggie happy hours in the past, so I hope that continues. More forever homes and afternoon animal fixes!!

  • This sounds awesome, can’t wait to take my pup to this. Anyone know of other doggy happy hours in the city. All I can think of is Adam’s Mill, but that is no longer in business

  • Wednesdays at Wisdom it’s Yappy Hour all night; $1 off all beers all night with your pup.
