If you like to sip on craft beer while looking at dogs in costumes (and who doesn’t?) get yourself to Urban Chestnut’s Midtown location (3229 Washington Avenue; 314-222-0143) next Tuesday evening.

Urban Chestnut is hosting its eighth annual Barktoberfest on October 15 from 6 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. The event is presented by the Young Friends of the Humane Society of Missouri, and ticket sales benefit the Humane Society of Missouri’s Rescued Pet Trauma Fund.

The fund provides care for sick and injured shelter pets so they can go on to become happy and healthy members of your family … and then you can take them to the next Barktoberfest!

Not only will they host a doggie costume contest, there will also be raffles, games and vendors on site serving treats for both you and your pup.

Tickets are only $25 and include an official Barktoberfest T-shirt and a craft beer. You can also book a VIP table (which seats eight friends and includes two drink tickets per person) for just $200.
