Pugapalooza Is Almost Here!!!

Pugapalooza Asbury Park Wonder Bar

I don’t know about all of you out there in Pug Land, but I am super jazzed about Pugapalooza next month!

Wait, what? You don’t know about Pugapalooza? Welcome back to Earth! Let me catch you up on what you’ve missed while you’ve been away…

Pugapalooza Asbury Park Wonder Bar

Pugapalooza is a weekend party for Pug lovers and their furkids (and other small breeds) in Asbury Park, NJ. It runs from May 4 – May 6 and it’s a crazy good time filled with fun, games and booze. There will be a meet and greet on Friday at Dark City Brewery, the Main Event at Wonder Bar (Home of the World Famous Yappy Hour) on Saturday with vendors, gift baskets and music – not to mention a Rum Bucket! A $10 donation at Wonder Bar is required which will benefit Pug Squad and, unfortunately, nobody under 21 or dogs will be allowed at the bar. We’ll wrap it up on Sunday with brunch and Pink Pug Promenade on the Boardwalk.

So, you ask, what does the donation to Pug Squad go toward? It gives us the funds necessary to help other rescues.

mini grants awarded first quarter 2018We award grants to worthy rescue groups and fire off donations to help support pugs who need urgent medical care. It is the core of what the Squad was created to do. However, we like to put the FUN in FUNdraising, so come on out and party down with The Squad and the bunch of celebrity Pugs who will be in attendance (who, you ask? No spoilers here).

With any luck, the weather will cooperate and we’ll all be able to look forward to an amazingly fun-filled weekend on the beach. Me, I’m looking forward to hanging with my Pug Pals and eating my face off. Just cruising the Yelp profile for Wonder Bar has me planning my carb overload. Wonder burger with cheese? Fried pickles? Foot long Shickhaus Hot Dog? Lead me to it…

Hotel space is limited, so if you want to spend the weekend (and who wouldn’t?), act fast. For more info and to keep up to date, head over to the Facebook page.

Convinced yet? You know you wanna go. We hope to see you there.

Mmmmmmm….Wonder burger with cheeeeeeese…..
