LI-DOG welcomed the summer of 2017 with a puppy party on the beautiful waterfront patio of Off-Key Tikki Waterside Bar and Grill in Patchogue. The palm-tree studded venue was the perfect setting for LI-DOG’s 2nd Annual Pints-n-PawsTM Luau on Sunday afternoon, June 11th!

The event featured games, raffles, a barbeque generously donated by Off-Key Tikki, tropical drinks, a tropically-themed photo set for selfies, and music provided by Off-Key Tikki’s band plus our own MC-extraordinaire Mike Kaplow.  Even though it was a very hot day, the palm trees, umbrellas and kiddie pools kept people and pups cool and comfortable.

Many guests—human and canine—were dressed in Island attire and were greeted by Laura Paesano of Laura Pea Photography with a welcome photo by the palm trees. Check out all of Laura’s wonderful photos and her great write up of the Luau at: http://www.laurapeaphotography.com/blog/photos-from-the-pints-n-paws-luau-61117

Our contests—Biggest Lap Dog, Silliest Dog Trick and Best Dressed Doggie and Me Margaritaville Contest–had some fierce competition as fur babies of all sizes—from tea cup to terrier to tremendous—participated. Congratulations to our winners and thanks to our outstanding team of judges: Sean Desmond, Lana Bongiovi, and Heidi Walker of our Special Guest Yorkie911 Rescue who were there with adorable adoptable pups!

Kick off the Dog Days of Summer early by joining us for LI-DOG’s 2nd Annual Pints-n-Paws ™ Luau!

You and your dog are invited to join us at a Pints-n-Paws ™ Luau, Sunday, June 11th, from noon until 4 p.m. for a day filled with music, prizes, contests, hamburgers/hot dogs, and the spirit of Luau fun at tropically-themed Off-Key Tikki Bar & Grill in Patchogue. This year we’ve added a Luau Photo Booth for fun photos of you and your pooch. We’ll have door prizes for our guests throughout the event and lots of raffle baskets generously donated by more than a dozen gracious sponsors who believe in our cause—more access to Long Island beaches, parks, and other places for us and our dogs!

ADMISSION TO LI-DOG’s 2nd Annual PINTS-N-PAWS™ LUAU:
$15 discounted advance tickets are available (see below). Please note: Advance ticket sales end Sat., June 10th at 6 p.m.
$20 admission at the door on the day of the event.

Click the “Buy Now” button below to purchase your Luau ticket. If you want more than one ticket, you can adjust the amount on the PayPal order site.       NOTE: The PayPal button has been commented out.

***Admission fee is per human (fur babies are free) and includes complimentary BBQ, free raffle ticket for door prizes, participation in contests, and unlimited drinks for Fido (only water since he’ll be DDD–designated dog driver!).

All proceeds benefit LI-DOG’s work to get more access to parks and beaches for Long Island dog owners and their dogs.

LUAU DOGGY-AND-PEOPLE CONTESTS!

Margaritaville ‘Doggy-and-Me’ Costume Contest
You and Fido need to channel Jimmy Buffet—Hawaiian shirts, leis, coconut bras, grass skirts—the surfboard is the limit for this contest where the winner is the best-dressed, luau-themed pet parent AND fur baby. Yes, you and your dog must BOTH be dressed in Jimmy Buffet attire to enter this contest.

Biggest Lap Dog
Do you have a big guy who thinks all 120 pounds of him is still comfy on your lap? Then this is the contest for you! Disclaimer: we will be taking lots of photos for the hilarity of a St. Bernard on someone’s lap…

Silliest Dog Trick
For those of us with rebel dogs who won’t be satisfied just ‘sitting’—what’s the funniest trick your dog can do? Enter this contest to show everyone what Fido has learned under your tutelage.

Admission fee includes participation in contests, but you’ll need to sign up to play once you’re there. Contests will take place on Off-Key Tikki’s stage and on the large patio by the water. Even if your fur baby isn’t competing, come watch and cheer on a friend!

RAFFLES ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT:
Raffle tickets for our sponsor’s baskets can be purchased during the event:

1 ticket for $2
3 tickets for $5
7 tickets for $10
Arms-length of tickets for $20
