Nominate your favorite dog-friendly lunch spot

    ‘Tis the season for outdoor seating. We’re trying to make a list of the best places in the area to take your pooch with you for lunch. Send us your favorites — and include a photo.

    ‘Tis the season for outdoor seating — except in these dog days of summer, when no one wants to be outside.

    When the sun is mild and the breeze is high, one saving grace of summer in the city is al fresco dining with a friend, no matter how filthy the sidewalk or how faded the umbrella — or how many legs your friend may have. 

    Recently, when WHYY news director Eugene Sonn was riding by a coffee shop in his town the other day, he noticed that three out of four outdoor tables were occupied by people dining with their dogs.

    So now we’re curious: What are the best places in the area to take your pooch with you for sidewalk seating? Nominate your favorite local pet-friendly hangout. We’re not talking picnic tables or beach blanket, either.

    Email speakeasy@whyy.org by July 27, and we’ll make a list of the top 10 favorites. Bonus points if you include a photo!
