The great ideas are the simple ones: an Internet search engine, a pop music reality show, an all-sports cable channel, and now, a happy hour where you can bring your dog. On the first Thursday of every month, Eastland Café hosts “Lappy Hour,” an ingenuous event where you can enjoy $5 cocktails and appetizers while your mutt ambles about and fetches you a companion. For your dog, there’s plenty of water and gourmet treats, which you can dole out if your little Rover proves to be a better come-on than any of your tired one-liners. Now you don’t have to feel guilty downing shots while your canine bangs up against her crate. Instead, the mutt can witness you make a fool of yourself—while it may undo years of obedience training, what kind of best friend has never seen you buzzed?
