Austin Celebrates First Ever 'Dog Restaurant Week' Instagram: TitosVodka

It’s no secret that Austin, Texas loves their pets. No, they adore their pets! I mean, who doesn’t? They’re cute, they’re fun, and they make us happy… it’s a no-brainer. If you ever visit Austin, you know that they are pretty much everywhere! Hiking on trails, at shopping malls, coffee shops, and even at happy hour enjoying some tasty treats while their humans are getting trashed. Name a place, and dogs will be there, I can guarantee it!

So, to take the love of dogs to another level, Edible Austin, along with their sponsors, Tito’s Handmade Vodka’s, are aiming to celebrate these pets by introducing Austin’s first ever Dog Restaurant Week. Vodka, food, and dogs all together in one place? Yup, that’s it, I am all for this, hands down!

A handful of local restaurants will celebrate their dogs from November 12-18, where there will be a menu of fall-centric dishes for the puppers. It’s time to spoil your four-legged friends with dishes that include pumpkin truffles, beef sliders, turkey fall feast garnished with fall vegetable and special treats that of course, are all safe for them to eat.

The dogs can even enjoy a canine cocktail made of frozen bone broth. Don’t worry, there will also be some special vodka cocktails for us humans. It kind of sounds like a win-win situation here.

To make things even better and to help other good boys out there, one dollar from every Tito’s Vodka cocktail sold at participating restaurants will benefit pet-related nonprofits. Think about it, you will be helping out other dogs around the area, your dogs will be treated like royalty, and you will be drinking it up for a good cause. Now THAT’s my kind of happy hour! Can this be a regular thing?
