It’s been a while since I stopped by Zombie Hut on Smith Street, which I’m fond of for their flaming rum cocktails and dog friendly outdoor space. After visiting the tiki bar this weekend, I was sad to learn they no longer allow dogs. Before we could even order drinks a bartender came to the backyard and notified us about the new policy. It turns out our friends at the Department of Health now require them to have a separate entrance to the yard for dogs. If this is true, it’s a damn shame since they have great outdoor space and don’t serve food, making it a good spot for drinking with your pooch. We ended up across the street at Bar Great Harry where Laly played with neighborhood dogs and her humans enjoyed happy hour specials. Thank you DOH for ruining a favorite summer spot.
