Hare of the Dog

This dog bar is made for dogs big and small!  They play awesome music, the whole bar is fenced in and there are lots of great people and canines alike.  Next time you are in Elizabeth, check out Hare of the dog!  It took place of Philospher’s Stone at the corner of 7th and Pecan street, last year.  It is a dog bar that is infamous for dogs running around while their owners drink, eat and listen to awesome music.
