Yappy Hour

Our first week in Boston, Noah and I learned about an amazing event called Yappy Hour. During the summer months, Yappy Hour takes place each Wednesday evening at The Liberty Hotel in Boston proper. The building that holds the hotel was a prison until the 1990’s. Now, as a hotel, it maintains some stylistic influences from its prison days. Such as these barred windows:

The hotel also has several restaurants, bars, and lounges with such inspired names as Alibi, The Clink, and The Yard. 

Back to Yappy Hour…

Yappy Hour is like Happy Hour. Except better because it’s with dogs! From 5:30-8:30pm on Wednesday evenings, people combine their love of dogs with that daily desire to get happy through reduced-price appetizers and booze, head to The Liberty’s outdoor patio called The Yard, and enjoy the wonder that is Yappy Hour.

Noah and I don’t have a dog, but clearly this is an event that would be well suited for spectators.

After waiting in a long line to get drinks (which also involved being slobbered on by a huge St. Bernard), we found a table and did some doggie-watching.

There were cuties:

Dogs who were sleepy:

Dogs who wanted to hide by their humans:

Dogs getting rowdy:

And dogs doing what dogs do best:

I also saw a beautiful Great Dane derivative (Great Dane and Dalmatian mix, maybe?):

Bottom line: Yappy Hour was super fun(ny). I would definitely recommend to all dog lovers – whether or not they have a furry friend to bring.
