UrbanTree Cidery, Atlanta’s first craft cidery, is excited to host their first ever Sunday Funday Pet “Paw”ty on Sunday, March 31! Dog lovers are welcome to bring their furry pals, meet fellow pet owners in the community, and gather at UrbanTree’s West Midtown tasting room and outdoor patio from 12:30-6:30pm.
A portion of proceeds from the event will be donated to Vintage Pet Rescue, a nonprofit organization committed to rescuing senior pets from shelters and assisting owners who can no longer care for their senior pets. The organization also refurbishes used furniture into dog beds.
During the event, guests may purchase special treats at the King of Pups vending cart and have professional photos taken of their stylishly costumed and dressed up pups by photographer Chris Cottrell. Organic, all-natural dog treats from Big Daddy Biscuits will be complimentary with a small donation to Vintage Pet Rescue, and water stations will be placed throughout the space.
For the humans, UrbanTree will serve special “Hair of the Dog” cocktails, including Bloody Marys and mimosas made with UrbanTree cider, and of course, their flagship ciders and seasonal flavors. Food truck C-BO’s BBQ & Southern Cuisine will also be on-site to sell bites during the party. Facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/429318597811388/
