Wag & Wine "Howl-o-ween" Party and Dog Costume Competition

Saturday, 10/29 from 2pm-5pm

As most of you know, BottleMixx is a pet friendly business, supports animal rescue and favors Second Chance Pet Adoptions as our charitable organization! 

Each quarter or so we like to have a special event to celebrate our furry friends! 

This time we are partnering with Dog Tales Day Camp and Boarding and Second Chance Pet Adoptions to celebrate Halloween in a big way for Man's Best Friend by having a costume competition.

Here's how it will work:
Starting at 2:00pm we will be pouring FREE samples of some "witching" wines. On the taps we'll have a special "ghoulish" beer for the occasion and BottleMixx will donate $1 for each of this draft sold to Second Chance Pet Adoptions.

The costume competition will start promptly at 3:00pm.  Each dog will show off their costume by walking down the center aisle and the judges will score the costumes. There will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winner!  Prizes will be a gift card for Dog Tales Day Camp and Boarding, a BottleMixx gift card and another surprise!

There will be a $5 entry fee for the competition (to be paid when you arrive) which will be donated to Second Chance and the first 15 dogs to enter will receive a FREE Halloween bandana! To register your dog for the competition just email  Please include your name, your dog's name, age, breed and if they are a rescue.  ALL well behaved dogs on leashes are welcome!

MORE capture the event we will be having a photo booth for you to take a picture of you and your pooch from 2:30pm-4:30pm and you will get a copy. There be fun props, but your doggie will be the best one of all!

We will also have free light snacks for all in attendance, including your pooches!

Samantha and Jessica, the owners of Dog Tales Day Camp and Boarding, will be here with information about their new boutique kennel and will be helping out with the competition. 

Second Chance Pet Adoptions will also be here with some great information about fostering, volunteering and adopting.  There also might be some doggies looking for their forever homes!

As usual, we will be matching the tips you leave at the bar area and donating them to Second Chance. We have donated more than $20,000 to Second Chance over the last 18 months and have given more than $50,000 to LOCAL pet charities since we opened in October of 2012.

Though not required, all humans can dress up, as well!  We would LOVE to see your Halloween costumes too!  

Don't have a dog or don't want to participate in the competition?  Still come by for the fun and see these cuties in action while enjoying a beer or wine while you are here! Have your picture taken too!
