After my recent success to engage you, my dear readers, and have you comment on what turned out to be a hot button issue, here is another topic for you to consider.
Long have E! and I debated whether to allow dogs on premise, whereby on premise means the outside dining areas, like the Biergarten. There are no dogs or any other pets allowed inside the restaurant, unless they are seeing eye or other assisting animals.
Back to the dog topic (why only dogs and not other pets: cats, rats, snakes, goats?). There are several issues E! and I have to take into consideration, among them liability, nuisance, and Piglet. The latter is our own pooch, a dachshund and jack russell mix, and we already fear that we have to stockpile doggy prozac for her, when the restaurant opens.
A while back someone mentioned to us a Yappy Hour, which we are currently leaning towards. One day of the week, the Biergarten would be open to dogs (and their owners), to frollic and be merry.
