Come On, Get Yappy

Man’s best friend and the best time one could have right after work, happy hour: Both of these convivial forces unite at America’s Backyard’s Friends of Greyhounds Yappy Hour this Friday evening. Combining two-for-one drink specials with the chance to hang out with your best furry friend for the night, Yappy Hour welcomes attendees to come out with their pets (leashed, of course) to enjoy the festive outdoor environs America’s Backyard has to offer. Donations and $20 drink tickets will benefit the Friends of Greyhounds volunteer organization. Sine 2002, this Broward-based charity has been placing retired racing greyhounds in qualified safe and secure homes. Its hard work has led to the placement of more than 1,900 greyhounds. On top of charitable drink tickets, the Friends of Greyhounds will have raffles, with prizes such as Miami Seaquarium tickets and Pet Supermarket vouchers, up for grabs. All this yappiness takes place Friday from 5 to 10 p.m. at America’s Backyard, located at 100 SW Third Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Free to attend. Visit, or call 954-578-0072.
