Did you BARK the News?
Location is key... Anaheim GardenWalk, a unique “eatertainment” destination just steps from Southern California’s Disneyland Resort and Anaheim Convention Center (, announced today the kickoff of a new program, “Paws on the Walk,” that encourages dog owners to share Happy Hour with their best four-legged friends as well as the two-legged variety. 
The first Paws on the Walk event took place Tuesday, September 4th, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the upper level patio at House of Blues Restaurant & Bar and featured a special event-only Happy Hour menu.
With 25 pups and 60 human friends the event kicked off with success!

Adding a four-legged Happy Hour to our roster of fun-filled evening activities is yet another way for people to share unique GardenWalk experiences with their friends – including the fur-covered, four-legged kind.”
During September’s inaugural Paws on the Walk event, there was a special photo opportunity for dog owners and their furry friends that includes props for human guests to hold and a VIP (very pretty pooch) artificial turf “green carpet” for dogs to walk while a photographer snaps complimentary keepsake pictures.
To add to the fun, humans were treated to henna tattoos. WAGS Pet Adoption and Anaheim Feed & Pet Supply will also be on hand to distribute free samples and answer questions about dog adoption, feeding and care.
