In 2006, a new state law established a three-year test program to allow Florida cities to choose to host pups at restaurants with outdoor areas. Laws like this one vary across the country – and by establishment – but are warmly welcomed by most pet owners.
Rocky tipped us off to a great spot in Jacksonville – Olé Mexican Restaurant. Their special Monday "Mutts and Margaritas" event includes an all-natural, no preservative dog menu with Paw-cos, Ruff-a-dillas and Barkitos, each served with Mutt-si-can rice and a Woof-a-rita. For dessert, both humans and pooches can share "Not So Fried Arf's Cream," a concoction of homemade frozen yogurt rolled in cinnamon and oats with carob drizzled on top. Yum!
