DOG-GONE GOOD PLACE TO LIFT YOUR DOGS SPIRITS
PUT YOUR PUPS PRINT ON THE WALL
AT HIS WINE STORE - THEY KNOW HIS NAME!
By FUR by J Mikel™, The Canine Curator™
If dog is a man’s best friend and all good days warrant to be properly celebrated with friends and family…then my animal loving friends need to know about Columbus Wine and Spirits. This gorgeous wine shop is the perfect place for Upper West Siders to go and grab a bottle of wine, champagne or Bethany’s Skinny Girl Margaritas with their dog in tow for a dog treat and a moment of fame that never looses its glow.
Dog walks that can combine errands are more satisfying for pet parents and in the dog days of summer, it is actually advisable for you to duck in and out of a few air-conditioned stores to keep your dog cool and generally hydrated as most pet friendly stores have water bowls. My pup comes to the bank, helps me update my wardrobe and believe me – I take his o-pawinion very seriously!
Dog parents love to share their proud pet moments and it is great when your dog is super welcome on these said errands. So you will all rejoice as you enter the amazing store, The friendly staff (big check) greets you and then you see a welcome board (bigger check) which identifies everyone in the store by name and prominently displays customer’s dogs who shop in the store. To be part of the family all you have to do is walk your pup over to Columbus Wine and Spirits with you fur friend and they will gladly photograph your lovely dog and print and share on the Dog Board. I am hoping Cookie will come to the next Skinny Girl Margaritas event!
Beyond the barks and wags, this super clean and well-stocked store is a great place to fashion host gifts. They are steps away from Whole Foods and other great produce stores, so you can always combine your wine with some artisanal bread or cheeses and have a picnic in Central Park – which is just a block away!
Visit this great store with your dog or borrow your neighbors for the full FUR effect
