Spoto's Oyster Bar in Palm Beach Gardens celebrates "Pet Parent's Night" Wednesday, April 27, with free wine for those with pets in tow and a free cooked snack for their canine "kids."
From 6 to 9 p.m., diners who come in with their dogs and eat outdoors in the pet-friendly courtyard get a free glass of house wine. Their dogs get a mini grilled burger or a mini portion of grilled chicken.

There are rules: Dogs only -- there's no provision in the pet-restaurant ordinance that allows for cats, birds, snakes or other "pets." There's no size limit on the dogs, but they must be on a leash. They have to sit in designated areas and never on the chairs. And don't expect any petting from the Spoto's staffers -- though the city ordinance allows pets at outdoor restaurants, staffers are not allowed to touch them while on duty.
"That's too bad in a way," says Ellen Daly, Spoto's co-owner with her brother, John Spoto. "Some of the dogs are much better behaved than some of the diners."
