DETROIT – Planning on dining out tomorrow? Why not pair your meal with beer, puppies, and a deal? In celebration of National Dog Day, Jolly Pumpkin Pizzeria and Brewery will be hosting a pet food drive to benefit the Michigan Humane Society (MHS) on Wednesday, Aug. 26. all day from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Those who choose to donate and dine at the Detroit location will receive 10 percent off of their entire bill.
Jolly Pumpkin’s mascot, a 10-year-old Jack Russell Terrier named Bam, has appeared on many of the brewery’s bottles and is part of the inspiration for the event. Bam’s likeness graces the labels of Bam Noire, Bam Bière, and Wiezen Bam, all of which can be enjoyed tomorrow. Pet-friendly seating is available on the patio, so Fido can come too.
On the way to dinner, attendees can stop by the Midtown Dog Park—just down the block from Jolly Pumpkin—and spend some time at the Make Your Dog A Hero @ Shinola pet adoption event hosted by MHS from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Jolly Pumpkin will be providing Bam-inspired gift bags to be given away at the event, and attendees can speak with MHS trainers, participate in an informal training session, or even adopt a pet of their own.
