You're invited to our Westminster Best In Show Party on Tuesday, Feb 11 from 8-11pm at Park...I mean *BARK* Central Tavern in Hamden.  We are so excited to make our annual party open to the public and at our favorite local restaurant to boot.  What could be better?  Well, I suppose sitting ringside in The Garden, but this is the next best thing!  Come join us as we cheer on our favorite breeds and share lots of fun behind the scenes info, breed specific tidbits and endless stories.  Enjoy the tasty treats from the dog themed menu, and if you've never been to Park Central then you don't know what you've been missing!  Their food is delicious and the atmosphere is as good as home without all the clean up!  And what better night than when your fellow dog friends take over and transform it into Bark Central?!?  Plus we will have a bunch of prizes for the lucky stars who pick the Best In Show winner.  There are two categories of winners: those who submit their entry to us before Sunday, Feb 9 11:59pm with the breed they think will win BIS, and those who come down for the party and submit their entry before Best In Show begins.  You may enter both contests, but the Grand prizes will be awarded to those who enter before the show begins Monday, Feb 10.  You must be present to win.  There will also be a best dog T-shirt contest so be sure to dress accordingly (and no that is not a wet dog T-shirt contest...that's only on Friday nights).  We firmly believe in positive reinforcement so there is no charge to enter the party or the contests, simply come, make your picks, sit back and get rewarded! 

So to recap:

Where: Park *Bark* Central Tavern 1640 Whitney Ave, Hamden, CT
When: Tuesday, February 11, 2014 8-11pm (group coverage starts at 8, BIS will probably start closer to 10)
Why: To celebrate the sport of purebred dogs and watch some gorgeous examples of the breeds we know and love
Who: Everyone is invited, it's a party!!

Trust me, you don't want to miss this. It will be, by far, the most fun you've ever had on a Tuesday night.  Bring your friends!  Unfortunately, no fur bearing friends allowed inside the restaurant, something about the health department, I don't know what their issue is, fur is organic, but for now we must comply.  Thanks and look forward to seeing you there!
