Happy hour of the week: Yappy Hour at Blue Banana

‘YAPPY’ HOUR
OF THE WEEK

The back patio at Blue Banana “has been dog-friendly since the day we opened,” says bar owner Jamie Hess. Oscar, his almost
3-year-old Portuguese water dog, may have had something to do with the decision. While pups have always been welcome, the bar decided to make it official in May by hosting a Yappy Hour every Thursday night. Dogs socialize while snacking on Milk-Bones and lapping from bowls of water; meanwhile, humans can get any drink in the house — beer, wine or mixed drinks — for $4.

Once per month, the bar donates 20 percent of the proceeds to the Washing­ton Animal Rescue League. Upcoming charity nights include June 14, July 12 and Aug. 16.

Yappy Hour: Thursdays from 6 to 9 p.m. The Blue Banana Sports and Rock Bar, 3632 Georgia Ave. NW. 202-713-5011. www.blue
