Jax and Friends - "Spring Fling - Part Two"

  • Apr 19, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

**Update on 4/17/14 @ 10:00 am.  We have 3 more spots, but will no longer be able to make you a customized handmade gift or custom nametag.  While these are both very cool, that shouldn't stop you from wanting to come and play with us! :)**

Hooray! We had so much fun at our Spring Fling Part One and can hardly wait for Spring Fling Part Two!

We will continue to require that all of our friends officially RSVP here to secure your spots. We sold out at last month's event two weeks before the actual event, so  RSVP ASAP or else you WILL miss out!  The DEADLINE to RSVP to this event is: Thursday, April 18th at 12:00 pm

Our April themed Jax and Friends "Spring Fling - Part TWO" is set for:

Saturday, April 19th, 2014 

(a) You + your furkid = $15.00. However, a $10.00 non refundable deposit is due in order to RSVP (paying via's Paypal link)

A confirmation email will be sent to you, as well as requesting the name(s) and number of attendees.  On the day of the event, the balance of $5.00 per furparent/hooman will be due.  (Sample: Prepaid deposit for 1 furkid = $10.00. 1 furparent = $5.00 cash paid on the day of the event.  2 furparents = $10.00 cash each paid on the day of the event.)

(b) If you'd like to pay for the full amount @ $15.00 (for one furparent) or $20.00 (for two furparents) you may do so, via (don't go through or Chase Quick Pay, email linked to the accounts: [masked].

(c) Additional furkids = FREE.

The fee includes: (1) 2 hours of playtime (2) light snacks (3) Access, via Facebook and, to all photos taken by Bob for you to download and add to your collection. If you want a family portrait, feel free to ask! (4) A percentage of the entrance fee will also go to a different charity or IG frenchie in need every month (5) as well as a percentage going to the bar employee(s) (not including the bartender).

Lots of important information below, please read carefully:

We will no longer have two designated group times (Small Dawgs and Frenchies/Bostons).  Instead, based on both your/your furkid’s comfort level, you can decide which timeframe to come. 

11:00 am – 11:30 am:  Low Peak time

11:30 am – 12:00 pm: Medium Peak time

12:00 – 1:00 pm: High Peak time

1:00 – 2:00 pm: Medium Peak time

2:00 – 2:30 pm: Low Peak time

Charlie's Chicago is located @ 3726 N. Broadway. This is a completely private Jax and Friends Party.  As you enter Charlie’s, I should be there to greet you, in theory! :)  But if for some reason I am not, feel free to pick up your nametag(s) and I’ll be sure to find you! There is a coat check area in the WAY back of the bar. You are welcome hang your coats, but there is no one who will be manning that area. Otherwise, there is a long table in the back to leave your personal items. While we are amongst dog loving friends, please be sure to keep any super personal items with you.

* Danny, your delightfully awesome bartender, will be ready to tend to all your libation needs (woot!) with a full bar.  This is a private party just for us, so please enjoy a few cold ones and help thank Charlie's Chicago for hosting our gathering.  And because this is a private event, this is a kid-friendly event and count as additional hoomans ($5.00 each).

* Parking: There is metered parking ($2/hour, for up to 2 hours at a time) on both Halsted and Broadway. Saturdays can be busy in our neighborhood, so to help save some aggravation and potential time wasted, an option could be to download a parking app (example: I use “ParkWhiz” on my iPhone and there is a lot at 3730 N. Lake Shore Drive for $6) where parking lots/structures are listed with their prices. Some can be outrageous, but a few are affordable. As our group is getting bigger (and we also are very close to a local Synagogue), parking may become more of a struggle. We don’t parking to be a hindrance and eat into your potential play time with us.

* Nametags for parents will be provided to help us get to know each other and the fukids. If this is your first event, please please please email [masked] with your furkid's name, their photo, along with parent name(s). A close up photo would be best.  Please send this by Wednesday, April 16th.

Our nametags are multi use, so please leave your nametag(s) behind so that we can have it ready for your next meet up with us.

* It may go without saying, but we ask that you monitor your furkid at all times which includes cleaning up after them and making sure they play nicely with everyone.  While we know humping happens (ha, nice bumper sticker, right?), please be mindful of other furfriend's feelings/reactions and try to keep it controlled.  Thanks in advance!

As always, please feel free to email ([masked]) and let us know if you have any questions.

If you have attended one of our events, we would love a moment of your time by asking that you leave us a review.  We love hearing your feedback and would like to share it to our friends who have yet to come to a Jax and Friends Meet Up <3.

These monthly Meet Ups are our highlights.  We get SO excited to see all our old friends and meet new ones, too!!  We hope you will feel the same, too!

    Lola and I won't be able to make it. She hurt her paw earlier in the week and I thought she would be ok today. But I just came home to pick her up and found a limping Lola. :-(

    I may be able to attend both April play dates so I'm RSVP'ing yes for both until something changes. If not, the 19th looks better than the 5th for me.
