Log Haven will kick off their annual Dog Days of Summer promotion with an inaugural event designed to make tails wag. On Sunday, June 1, Log Haven will host the Dog Days of Summer Shake-Off cocktail contest to benefit the Humane Society of Utah.
Libation lovers and their canine companions are invited to Log Haven’s hillside amphitheater to shake paws and cocktails with acclaimed bartenders and mixologists Brenda Gomez and Ian Cobb of Log Haven; Jesse Garrett of BTG; Scott Gardner of Finca and Todd Gardiner of Taqueria 27. Each mixologist will create a canine-themed cocktail with an eye to winning Best in Show. A panel of judges will select the their favorite cocktail based on originality, flavor, presentation and relevance.
Cost of the cocktail contest is $20 per person and includes hors d’oeuvres, tax and gratuity. Cocktails are priced a la carte. Proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of Utah who will be in attendance with dogs for adoption. Arrive early to meet these adorable adoptable pets. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., and the contest will begin at 6:15 p.m. Reservations are highly recommended.
While the Shake-Off is a one-day-only event, well-behaved canines and their human companions can escape the hot valley and visit the restaurant for the seventh year of Dog Days all summer long. Beginning May 31 and continuing through September as weather permits, dogs and their owners can take a hike in Millcreek Canyon (one of only two Wasatch Front canyons that allow dogs), and then enjoy a refreshing beverage and a delicious snack or meal in Log Haven’s outdoor amphitheater. Log Haven provides fresh water and doggie treats for Fido; owners can reward especially good pups with menu items including K-9 game kabobs.
