Are you ready to “PAWTEE”? Does Sunday brunch outside with your pup on a big patio with tables and umbrellas (socially-distanced, of course), delicious omelettes, waffles, mimosas and Bloody Mary’s sound great? If so, then please join us for Barkin’ Brunch with LI-DOG at The Refuge, just off Route 110 in Melville.

Besides great food, there’ll be drink specials, dog treats, raffles, and more! Visit The Refuge website to review their menus (Brunch and Brunch Cocktails) and their COVID Safety Plan. That’s Coco@nybulldogsisters, captured by her Mom Feng Sherri Hsiu, reading the Pawtee Menu at one of our previous brunches!

Due to COVID-19 guidelines, the outside bar is closed and the couches and chairs around it have been replaced with socially-distanced tables. In order to be seated at a table, you MUST have a reservation. The maximum reservation per table is limited to six guests if not family; ten guests if family. The Refuge strongly recommends making your reservation ahead of time by calling 631-577-4444, but you may still make a reservation when you arrive on a first come, first served basis. If you have a reservation, please let the hostess know that your party has arrived and then visit the LI-DOG table and check out our great raffle baskets!

This is a fund raising event to benefit LI-DOG – The Long Island Dog Owners Group. Please do take a chance at winning one of the GREAT raffle baskets generously donated by our sponsors who believe in our cause—more access to Long Island beaches, parks, and other places for us and our dogs!

LI-DOG would like to thank The Refuge and Tito’s Vodka for not only donating one of their popular raffle baskets for the event but also for including LI-DOG in the Tito’s x Refuge donation program for Long Island nonprofits. We are so grateful for their generous support!

PET PARENT ESSENTIALS FOR THE BRUNCH: Make sure to walk your dog outside the venue before entering, bring poop bags, and watch your dog closely. Please note that while well-socialized and fully vaccinated dogs are allowed on the grounds of the venue, ONLY service dogs are permitted to enter the indoor bar/restaurant area.
