Yappy Hour at Belltown Pub

Don't be surprised if you belly up to the bar next to a bulldog or a St. Bernard at Belltown Pub Wednesday. Dog lovers and their furry friends are invited to mix and mingle for a "Yappy Hour" to benefit the Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation.

A special food and drink menu features whimsical cocktail names like Whisker Sours and Cos-meow-politans. Guests of the four-legged variety won't be left out of the fun. A dog-friendly menu is on tap for canine companions.

A portion of the proceeds from sales of specialty cocktails, select draft beers and the happy hour food menu will go to the Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation, which supports the programs and initiatives of the Seattle Animal Shelter. SAS helps thousands of local dogs, cats and critters every year.

Raise a glass and toast the work SASF does for the community this Wednesday, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Belltown Pub, 2322 1st Ave. Humans must be 21 and over; dogs of any age are welcome.
