    Since the weather has been a bit nicer lately and it's starting to cool off, it's time again for another round of drinks, people and our wonderful pups.

    Like last April, we'll be meeting up at Boneyard Drinkery (Facebook link) which is conviniently located at 8150 Washington Ave just inside the Loop about a mile north of I10 (map) around 6pm and will go until whenever you feel like leaving (just be out by midnight or you'll have unhappy bartenders). If you want to come earlier, they open at 2pm so that's fine as well. Like always, even if you don't have a dog you're more than welcome to come. My dog Henry is a HUGE attention hooker and loves people so you're perfectly welcome to pretend he's your's for a bit however, he does come home with me (sorry).

    If you haven't been, Boneyard is a bar/dog park.

    Inside is a beer/wine bar and they even have frozen drinks usually but they do not sell liquor or non alcoholic drinks. It's icehouse rules so you're free to bring your distilled beverage of choice and mixers if you like. They do have a vending machine that sells soda's and bottled water but you are free to bring your own. Just can't bring your own beer and wine.
    Outside is a 7,000sqft double gated and fenced dog park with picnic tables and trees for shade.

    They usually have a food truck that's ready to go by 6 and there till 9ish. This isn't set in stone so if you're planning to eat, please call to double check prior to heading out. We've shown up a couple times expecting a truck and once we got there we found out they had issues and couldn't make it. So, again, just double check if you want food. You can always bring your own food and eat on the patio, just no food inside the dog park. Bar and patio is fine, just not the park.

    Like everything, there are a few rules for the park that I'll go ahead and throw out there to minimize confusion later.
    1. All dogs must be spayed/neutered. If your dog is still packing or is able to pop out mini dogs, they are allowed to be in the bar or patio area, however they are not allowed inside the park.
    2. No food inside the park (treats or human food)! People like food, dogs like food. We all like food. Unfortunately some dogs don't like other dogs around food that could potentially be theirs, so there is no food allowed inside the park. They have a nice patio with tables and chairs to eat at that is overlooking the park so use those.
    3. No kids. It IS a bar after all.
    4. Clean up after your dog. Nobody likes getting their shoes messy.
    5. Dogs should be leashed at all times while outside of the park and unleashed in the transition area prior to entering the park.
    6. Open one gate at a time. If both gates are open at the same time, you run the chance of allowing a dog to get out and possibly into the street. If this happens, you will have some very upset owners so make sure there are no other gates open when you open yours.
    7. You're responsible for your dog. If your dog acts aggressive, please leash them and remove them from the park. You are liable for any damage or injury inflicted by your dog. This has never been a problem with our group, just letting everyone know.

    Aaaannddd, that concludes my book. To get things rolling, have a pic of our last trip out!!
