SEMINOLE HEIGHTS, Fla. -- There are plenty of bars where you can take your dogs, but there are no dog parks that have a bar. That's about to change.
Todd Goldfarb looks over the plans he's worked on for the last year and a half. He wants to turn an empty, overgrown lot into a well-manicured dog park, but this would be a special park. "My wife turned to me and said wouldn't it be great if there were a place you could let your dog off leash and still have a beer and that's how the idea was born."
Unlike public dog parks, all dog owners would have to show vaccination papers and Goldfarb says there would be a small membership fee. "I know it's a hurdle and we didn't want to do it, but you have to do it to make everybody safe and there's going to be a $5 day pass and a $40 yearly fee."
Goldfarb thinks it's a perfect fit for this dog-friendly neighborhood, to give puppy parents a little break with a beer. "So it's just beer and wine, no liquor and we're going to have locally-brewed craft beers."
And if all goes as planned, Goldfarb, his wife Mara, and their two schnauzers, Frida and Diego, will be hanging out here enjoying a beer this fall. "There's a lot of neighborhood support for this project so hopefully people will come out."
