It’s National Dog Week: Let Us Know Where You’re Dining With Dogs!

Dining With Dogs

We’re celebrating National Dog Week by dining with dogs — and so should you! To kick things off, we’ve partnered with the folks at Bark to host a dog-friendly brunch at Del Frisco’s Grille in Manhattan. Beloved Instagram dogs were in attendance to try out the latest toys from BarkShop’s Lights! Camera! Bark! collection (think avo toast, froyo, and rosé), while their owners were able to sample executive chef (and rescue dog owner) Greg Lombardi’s delicious fare. 

To join in on the fun and fete your faithful companion, follow and tag @OpenTable on Instagram and share a photo of your dog dining out using #DiningWithDogs for a chance to win a $100 Visa Gift Card and swag from Bark. Full terms and conditions after the jump.

Tomorrow, we’ll share restaurants that really roll out the red (or green) carpet for doggie diners. And, we’re also making a donation to Houston Pets Alive to help dogs affected by Hurricane Harvey. To learn more about their efforts and to donate, visit //www.houstonpetsalive.org/.

And a very special thanks to our friends for joining our Dining With Dogs brunch, including:
