How to find us:
We’ll be out on the patio! Come thru the gate, to the right of the front entrance.

Are you ready to PAWTY?! Does Sunday brunch outside with your pup on a big patio with tables and umbrellas, delicious omelets, waffles, mimosas and Bloody Mary’s sound great? If so, then join us for a Barkin’ Brunch with LI-DOG at The Refuge on Sunday, Oct. 9th! Please note this is a change of date because of the weather.

Besides great food, there’ll be drink specials, dog treats, raffles, and more! Don’t forget to ask for the special Doggie Menu! Visit The Refuge website to review their Brunch and Brunch Cocktail menus.

In order to be seated at a table, you MUST have a reservation. The Refuge strongly recommends making your reservation ahead of time by calling 631-577-4444, but you may still make one when you arrive on a first come, first serve basis. The maximum reservations per table is limited to six guests if not family; ten guests if family.

If you have a reservation, please let the host know that your party has arrived.
Once you and your pup are out on the patio, please stop by the LI-DOG table to sign in and then check out all the great raffle baskets we’ve put together.

This is an important fundraising event for LI-DOG. Please do take a chance on winning one of the GREAT raffle baskets generously donated by our sponsorsBadger Balm, BarkBox, CVS, Dan’s Pet Care, Earth Bath, Earth Rated, East End Café, Glo-mar, Lia’s Cucina Italiana, Lido Kosher Deli, Lieb Cellars, Liquor & Wine Warehouse, Long Island Bagel Cafe, Panera Bread, Stop & Shop, and Tito’s Vodka. Plus, special thanks to Alan Meschkow, Gail Meschkow, Bailey Applebee Dog, and one Anonymous donor for their creative and much appreciated individual donations!

LI-DOG would like to extend special thanks to Tito’s Vodka and The Refuge. Not only is Tito’s donating one of their popular raffle baskets to the event, but we want to thank them and The Refuge for including LI-DOG in the Tito’s x Refuge donation program for Long Island nonprofits! We are so grateful for your generous support!
