Dogs Will Serve You Beer At This British Bar


By Cooking Panda

If you’ve dreamt of going to a bar where dogs wait on you hand and food, we have some life-changing news for you.

There is a one-day-only pop-up bar in London where German Shepherds will serve you beer. Yes, you heard correctly. Unfortunately, the event is already sold out, but we’re hoping that it will be so successful that they’ll bring it back.

Kronenbourg 1664, a 350-year-old brewing company from the Alsace region of France, set up the event as a marketing stunt to accompany a new beer advertisement featuring dogs delivering beer in Alsace. At the May 6 event, which will be held at Bar D’Alsace-tian in Soho, London, each “professionally-trained” German Shepherd dogtender will be wearing a lightweight, miniature barrel around its neck that has a chilled bottle of beer inside. Those lucky enough to have snagged a reservation will find their table equipped with bread, cheese and two bottles of Kronenbourg. When patrons finish their beer, a German Shepherd will bring them another.

“We’re absolutely delighted to be opening the doors on the world’s first bar staffed by dogs,” said Ifeoma Dozie, brand director at Kronenbourg 1664, according to the Irish Examiner. “It provides customers with a truly unique experience and is the ideal way for us to bring the ‘Alsace-tians’ to Kronenbourg fans.”

“With Bar D’Alsace-tian, we will have man’s best friend delivering one of man’s greatest achievements: the Taste Supreme of Kronenbourg 1664,” Dozie added.

If London is a little far for you, or you just simply were unable to nab a reservation, don’t despair – there are other dog-friendly businesses stateside, like the Dog Cafe in Los Angeles. The canines there won’t wait on you or deliver your beverages, but you still get to play with a cafe full of lovable pups looking for someone to adopt them.

All Bark – And Plenty To Bite: The Seattle Barkery Provides Food Truck Service For Dogs


By Cooking Panda

Meet Buster.

Owned by Ben and Dawn Ford, Buster is a food truck located in the Pacific Northwest, and he’s been feeding various clientele in Seattle since the ’70s, according to the business’ website.

Buster, professionally known as The Seattle Barkery, is not your typical food truck. “With three gears and a top speed of 55 mph,” the bright turquoise truck travels around Seattle, boasting a unique menu — one that caters primarily to dogs.

The business, according to Bizjournals, started when Dawn, a former dog-walker who often baked treats for her puppy-charges, realized that the dogs sometimes abandoned the regular food provided by their humans, choosing to indulge in her home-baked goods instead.

And the rest, as they say, is history. Dawn and her husband bought Buster on Craigslist, and thus The Seattle Bakery was born.

So what’s on the menu? While The Seattle Barkery offers a limited menu for humans, the real treats are going to the dogs. As Metro reports, they’ve got bacon pupcakes, peanut butter banana biscuits (if you’ve ever put a dollop of peanut butter on your dog’s nose, you’ll understand the appeal behind this one), beefy carrot bagels, ice cream sundaes in edible bowls, and even birthday dogcakes.

While the business lists its address as 1111 Treat Street on Facebook, in reality, Seattleites can expect to find the truck at local farmers markets and dog parks, or check The Seattle Barkery’s Facebook page, where they often update where they’ll be stationed for the day.

Finally, the Pacific Northwest canine gourmands have something to bark about.
