Got a pup you’d love to take out with you for happy hour? 

You’re in luck. Smoke Shack, 332 N. Milwaukee St. in the Historic Third Ward has officially launched Pups & Pints, a dog friendly happy hour series that’s built for dog-loving humans and their pooches.

The weekly happy hour will take place on Mondays from 4 to 6 p.m. every week on Smoke Shack’s covered patio. It will include happy hour specials including pork belly burnt ends ($5); smoked chicken dip and chips ($5), plus $4 draft brews and specialty cocktails.

Those who bring a pup will also receive a free Smoke Shack Dog bandana, smoked chicken nibbles and dog-friendly biscuits. Even better, during the month of August, Smoke Shack will be offering take-home doggy bags of toys and more. 

Please note: All dogs must be leashed for the happy hour event but are welcome to socialize with all guests on the patio.

Space is limited, so guests are asked to RSVP for specific dates on the Pups & Pints Facebook events page.
