This morning my friend texted me this article from PureWow: BEST NEWS EVER!
Turns out - NYC is getting a dog cafe! Animal cafes are new concepts... we've heard of cat cafes, where patrons can snack and drink while meeting adoptable fur babies looking for a furever home. This will be the same idea.
Boris and Horton plans to open in the East Village sometime soon according to their website.
More info from PureWow:
Instead of having resident dogs, it’s more of a BYOD situation, though non-owners are totally welcome, too. But the café will host events with Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue on weekends, so you may just pick up a new sidekick along with your latte. Fortunately, that’s a risk we’re willing to take.
And in case you’re wondering, everything’s above board with the health department—a glass partition will divide two adjacent spaces: a café serving coffee, wine and beer, pastries and sandwiches on one side and a dog-friendly area where you can enjoy your snacks while Bear makes new friends.
