I am a simple man – clearly – and I enjoy the simple pleasures of life. As I’ve said before, there are few simple pleasures better than a good beer or a relaxing lounge with your pet. Now, if you can find a place where you can combine those two things? Pure bliss.
In our travels, Eko and I were lucky enough to find a couple establishments that blended bars with dog parks. Unfortunately we haven’t found one of those gems in Chicago (business idea anybody!?) but last night I think we found the next best thing. Not far from my apartment, Wrightwood Tap is a bar that welcomes dogs with open arms. The bar doesn’t serve food, so your pup is welcome to come inside to rest his paws beside you.
As if I needed another excuse to take Eko out for a walk
Eko and I have visited plenty of restaurants/bars where we sit out on the patio but still get some strange looks from the staff. Our experience at Wrightwood Tap couldn’t have been more different. After I ordered my beer, the bartender came right around with some water and treats for Eko.
Eko was distraught when he dropped his treat into his drink, but he eventually fished it out
Eko was in the mood for a low five after our discovery of such an awesome place
Wrightwood Tap, we’ll be back!
Wrightwood Tap is a simple establishment that is perfect for a simple man like me. The bar has definitely earned itself two new regulars!
