10 Memorial Day weekend activities for New York dogs | thepupdiary.com

24 May

While many dogs are hitting the road this very busy Memorial Day travel weekend, we are having a staycation in New York City to explore, relax, and have some fun! Here are 10 dog activities and events we may try to check out in the next few days:

Hester Street Fair: The Hester Street Fair at the corner of Hester and Essex is open Saturdays through October 26 from 10 am to 6 pm. This is the pawfect spot for an outdoor brunch with yummy food and cool vendors.

South Street Seaport: We luv the Seaport area! The Salty Paw’s new summer location on Pier 17 is pawsome! And we are excited to check out the Seaport’s new SEE/CHANGE program with pop-up shops and restaurants. A SmorgasBar opens at the Seaport today!

Visiting Brooklyn

Visiting Brooklyn

Smorgasburg (DUMBO): We hop the East River Ferry (dogs in bags are welcome) and head to DUMBO for beautiful views, good food, and open spaces! The Sunday Smorgasburg in the Tobacco Warehouse allows pups. It gets very crowded so come early!

Celebrity Catwalk Pawty: Celebrity Catwalk is hosting a party on Saturday evening, May 25 from 5 to 7 pm at their Pre Paws In The City Yappy Hour at Unleashed by Petco 157 Chambers Street (Between West Broadway & Greenwich)

Pup crawl: We start at the dog-friendly 105th Street Hudson Beach Cafe. Then head down to the Boat Basin Cafe at 79th Street followed by Pier I cafe. If we still feel like walking, we hit PD O’Hurley’s at Pier 84 and a final stop at The Frying Pan! A beautiful walk along the river!

Volunteer: We are spending part of the weekend doing home visits for Yorkie 911 Rescue. We compiled a list with some volunteer options for NY dogs.

Central Park time: Nuff said! We love to explore the park in the early morning and dusk. Too bad they aren’t having a Bagel Bark this weekend!

Clean: UGH! But we still have spring cleaning to do! Go through your old towels and linens and donate them to Rock and Rawhide or the Oklahoma tornado effort. Rock and Rawhide will collect linens at the Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days event on June 1 and 2.

Shop: So it looks like rain for at least part of the weekend . . . We will do some online shopping at Res-Q-Threads – we luv their new Yorkie shirt! We’ll also stroll through The Shops at Columbus Circle on our way to the park!

Day Trip: Hop a Metro North train and head outside the city for an afternoon. (It is even fun to just explore Grand Central Terminal without taking the train anywhere!) Where to go? Croton Point Park, Yonkers waterfront, Tarrytown . . . Here are a few options from a CBS news report.

And don’t forget to relax! We love to hang out at Madison Square Park’s Shake Shack with a Pooch-ini and a good book. There is some good doggy watching there!
