MKE IT Downtown

Mark Your Calendars for Exciting Dog Happenings, Right Here in Downtown! 

March 10, 2022 /   Dog Milwaukee

Our tails are wagging - so many exciting partnerships are launching this month in support of the MKE Dog Park Project! Here are some ways you can participate to make Milwaukee’s dog park dreams become a reality:

 Wag Wednesday Yappy Hour, March 16th - Drink Wisconsinbly Pub

Wag WednesdayIf you did not know already, Drink Wisconsinbly Pub on 320 W Highland Ave, is one of the few downtown Milwaukee bars who always welcome 4-legged friends into the pub. Drink Wisconsinbly is more than a punny t-shirt company; Drink Wisconsinbly is a company who cares about the local community and giving back - which is why Drink Wisconsinbly and MKE Dog Park make the perfect duo! Join us (and all your furry friends) at the monthly Wag Wednesday Yappy Hour from 5:00pm to 9:00pm for a fun filled night in supporting a great cause and need in our city. 10% of all proceeds during Yappy Hour will directly benefit making the MKE Dog Park a reality - cheers to that! Learn more about the event and RSVP at the Facebook page here!
