CRAVE and Secondhand Hounds Presents Yappy Hour at CRAVE West End

We are excited to announce our summer Yappy Hour series with our May CRAVE Care’s Partner, Secondhand Hounds.

Between May 7th and June 3rd, 2014, CRAVE Restaurants nationwide will donate a portion of proceeds from our Special’s Menu directly to Secondhand Hounds. We will kick-off the month with a dog-friendly “Yappy Hour” on the patio at CRAVE West End from   3-7pm on Wednesday, May 7.

Come soak in the Minnesota sun with your pooch and enjoy your favorite CRAVE happy hour food and drinks. We will feature a Salty Dog Cocktail with support from our event sponsor, Aviv VodkaBarkley’s Bistro, has generously donated dog treats from their new Beer Cheese series they have been working on.  Barkley’s Bistro partners with local breweries to utilize their spent grains from the brewing process. Your hound won’t want to miss out on a mix of Summit’s Ale & Cheddar and Vine Park’s Porter & Provolone! Sidewalk Dog, ADOGO, and MSP Magazine are also supporting the summer series.

The Yappy Hour series will continue throughout the summer at a variety of Kaskaid Hospitality locations, so be sure to check back for further details on our summer series across Minneapolis!

Secondhand Hounds is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue that has rescued more than 5,400 animals since its July 2009 founding. Its network of volunteers and foster homes provides safe shelter, proper veterinary care, and daily necessities for rescued animals, while working hard to find each a permanent, loving home. The rescue is also dedicated to ending the negative perception of pit bull breeds, and educating the public about responsible pet ownership. It is currently the second-largest animal rescue group in Minnesota. For more information, or to adopt or volunteers, please visit

CRAVE is proudly committed to supporting the communities we serve through our CRAVE Cares program. Every month we donate a percentage of our sales to a different local non-profit organization, and we take great pride in supporting our local communities.
