Perhaps one of the hardest aspects of owning a dog is having to be separated from your furry friend.
It’s never easy to leave those puppy eyes, but when you’ve got to go to, say, a bottomless brunch or a bowling party, what’s a dog-owner to do?
Well, fear no more, because there’s actually a way for you to combine all of the above.
A UK bowling alley is launching a dog-friendly bottomless brunch as one of its summer events.
In celebration of London Dog Week, All Star Lanes‘ “Barking Brunch” will take place on four dates over June, July, and August, and will cater to both humans and canines.
The two-legged attendees will get to enjoy two hours of bottomless prosecco, mimosas, or craft beer, along with dishes from the Lanes Kitchen’s brunch menu: options include the signature Lebowski brunch burger, fried chicken and waffles, buttermilk pancakes, huevos rancheros, and of course, avocado on sourdough.
Brunch dishes start from £6.50 ($US8) for a short pancake stack, plus £20 ($US25) for the bottomless booze.
Four-legged friends won’t be left looking longingly at your food, though, as dog-friendly treats and libations will also be provided.
After chowing down on a brunch feast, you’ll be able to enjoy a spot of bowling – so maybe go easy on the prosecco if you fancy getting a strike.
The dog-friendly bowling brunches are currently set to take place on June 1, July 13, and August 3 and 31 from 11.30 a.m. to 2 p.m., and also 2.30 p.m. to 5 p.m. at All Star Lanes White City in west London.
A spokesperson for the company told INSIDER they’re hoping to add extra dates in due course.
Brunch isn’t the only dog-friendly event on offer, though – All Star Lanes is also hosting dating evenings and launching a “Dog Parent Bowling League.”
The “Date My Dog” evenings will allow dogs and their single owners to mingle over nibbles and prosecco for £20 ($US25) a ticket on July 26 and August 30 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and 8 p.m. to 10 p.m at All Star Lanes Brick Lane, in east London.
After all, you wouldn’t want to start dating someone and then find out they were a cat person, would you?
The bowling league invites teams to enter the competition either at one event or all four over the summer to be in with a shot of winning prizes for both parent and pooch, including free bowling for a year.
Tickets cost £10 ($US12.50) per person for bowling, or £20 ($US25) per person for bowling and a sharing platter full of signature snacks, and the events are taking place at All Star Lanes White City on July 7, August 4, and September 1 from 12.30 p.m. to 3 p.m.
