This week in free things to do we have a doggy happy hour, a gallery show in a private home, and a street party. Come take a look and plan your week.
Bourbon, Bones, and Beer
Folks looking to break their Monday blues need look no further than this smile-inducing yappy hour, where pups will dine alongside their human buddies. Forget the house-made pickles; the menu on Mondays will feature house-made doggy snacks for your canine. Tennis balls and bandanas are some of the freebies your furry friend will score. Humans will get treats as well, with $4 pints, $3 bourbon shots, and a $12 special that gets you a beer, a brat, and a shot. Or stay for the evening, as the regular happy hour kicks in at 8 p.m. with house wine and other food specials. The event, co-hosted by Sidewalk Dog, raises funds for Pet Haven. 4:30 to 9 p.m. Monday. Butcher & the Boar, 1121 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis; 612-238-8888. Mondays through October 31.
