70012735_2712519558792063_5317855594818830336_o.jpg

HEY CHICAGO - MARK YOUR CALENDARS BECAUSE THE SECOND ANNUAL PUG DAY PARTY IS UPON US!! OHHHH YESSSSS!

For one night only, Maplewood will once again be opening its doors to all of our furry friends in observance of National Pug Day and the release of Morbidly Obese Pug: Salted Caramel Brownie in CANS!

During the event get a free professional dog portrait taken of your pup at the photo-booth station, purchase Maplewood branded dog merchandise, and drink as much beer as you can (you have an excuse, it's for the pugs). Maplewood will be partnering with Integrative Pet Care of Chicago, Chicago's veterinary clinic focused exclusively on physical rehabilitation, to donate $1 of every pint sold to a local animal rescue organization.

"Let's try to beat the world record for as many pugs in one place, or a lounge at least." - Adam Smith

DOG FRIENDLY. FAT PUGS ENCOURAGED. CANS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE. NON-TICKETED EVENT.
