Nothing like having pizza for a Birthday party! Guinness turns 4 at the end of the month and would love some company to celebrate. As always I'll make the dogs some special treats and make some cupcakes for us.
You must RSVP by Thursday so I can give proper heads up to Pub Dog on how many to expect.
For the walk, we'll go around Sewells Orchard Pond. We'll begin on Dobbin Road (see Directions below) with a short stroll through pine woods and a field, and then circle the pond. There are benches en route and areas to view the great blue herons and ducks who live on the pond. The walk is fairly short (less than 2 miles) but very pretty and quiet.
After the walk, we'll take a very short (1/10 mile) drive to the Pub Dog (8865 Stanford Blvd). Dogs are very welcome here. The Pub Dog has a large outdoor patio with about a dozen tall table-and-bench sets attached to the side of the building. Everything is dog-themed. The menu consists of salads and about 15 varieties of pizza, plus they have a nice selection of their own brews (also dog themed). The pub is not presently offering outdoor table service, so you'll need to place your order inside and bring it out. I'll bring menus to make ordering easier. Feel free to check out their menu's online before you go: food menu and/or a beer menu.
DIRECTIONS FOR THE WALK We'll start the walk at the parking lot of the Columbia Business Center, Building 6420. The Google map is not very clear for this one, but the parking lot is directly across from the Blockbuster and Benjamin Moore Paints at 6505 Dobbin Road. As you turn in at the light (Look for the Columbia Business Center sign),you'll go toward the office buildings on your right and park close to Dobbin Road near the building labeled 6420. Look for the gathering of dogs! Here is a map I created for the parking spot---http://goo.gl/maps/YlNts.
For Pub Dog directions, see the "Location" instructions above or the Pub Dog website.
If you want to skip the walk and just meet us for lunch, we will likely get to Pub Dog (8865 Stanford Blvd) around 11:00 for lunch. See you there!
