Yappy Hour Gaspers Grotto
Greetings from sunny and sweltering Tampa Florida-after several months of near perfect weather we are currently in a string of 88-90 degree days. Never thought I would be less than thrilled with the beginning of summer. Hopefully some rain will be headed our way soon as well as we are stuck in a severe drought! Nonetheless I had a great Saturday the highlight of which was attending the Yappy hour 4-7 at Gaspers Grotto in Ybor City-this is their website:http://www.gasparsgrotto.com/
Once a month this colorful restaurant and bar opens its large patio to dogs and their owners. I attended with my friend Natalia and her two Jack Russell's-Miley and Max. There was a costume contest, pet tricks and music. Surprisingly many of the pups were allowed to wander at will without a leash! I had a great time, everyone seemed happy and there were smiles all around. Hope you enjoy the slide show of images below.
