On St. Patrick's Day, Thursday, March 17th, we will be attending "Drink for the Dogs", an event hosted by Healdsburg Bar & Grill (HBG) to raise money for the Green Dog Rescue Project. Colleen and her staff from Green Dog Rescue will be there with puppies to pet and to host a raffle with some nice donations from the community.
Like all St. Patty's Day celebrations, this night will consist of lots of booze, delicious food (Chef Douglas Keane's famous burger was featured in Food & Wine Magazine's 25 Best Burgers of the United States.), and music and vocals by the incredible Terry Savastano.
Chef Keane puts the night into his own words:
"My brother and I have always celebrated St. Patrick's Day together for over 20 consecutive years and three years ago we decided to start our own tradition instead of schlepping around to various cities and bars that we clearly have aged past! So, we swore to bring St. Patrick's Day to Healdsburg and have our debauchery at least go to a good cause. We've basically recreated the St. Patrick's Day's we spend with our family growing up.”
HBG will donate 33% of the gross sales to the Green Dog Rescue Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing Sonoma counties' pets. In addition, each food and drink check will have an additional line on which you can make your own donation to the Green Dog Rescue.
The Green Dog Rescue Project introduces a nature-based philosophy to the animal welfare industry. Their interests are to educate the community and industry in the methods and language of animals, in an effort to improve the manner in which we house homeless animals and minimize the lives lost as a result of behavior issues, poor social skills, overcrowding, and other traditional criteria.
If you love dogs, booze, music, and good food as much as we do, join us at Healdsburg Bar & Grill on St. Patrick's Day!
If you love the experience of a fabulous Bed and Breakfast Inn, please book the night at The Gables Wine Country Inn and we will donate 15% of the proceeds to the Green Dog Rescue Project.
