A Whole Lotta Barks + Beers @ SoNo Marketplace’s New Farm Terrace Beer Garden

14 Aug

Norwalk’s about to get a brand new beer garden courtesy of SoNo Marketplace.  While they have beer at Up the Creek in the center of their space, the Farm Terrace Beer Garden will be a totally different experience.  You’ll be able to pick up food from any of the great spots inside or the food trucks nearby then bring it to your garden table and have some nice cold local and craft brews like Half Full.  It’s slated to open on 8/17 and will have its first official event on August 24:  Barks & Beer.  This is a benefit for Bully Breed Rescue, an awesome organization based in New Canaan that rescues pitbulls, takes care of them, and helps the doggies to find their forever homes.  All you need to do is stop by on the 24th from 1-6 and check out The Farm Terrace Beer Garden and give a $5 donation.  When you give that donation, you’ll get a ticket that entitles you to any draft beer on tap!  And, if you’d like to take home a new friend, be ready because there were be some cute and happy doggies there ready to be adopted!  For a sneak peek, see all the great doggies they have.  

While you’re there, you might get some food shopping done with fresh produce from The Farm Stand, check out the restaurants and food shops inside, and/or check out all the awesome booths.

Here are some of the places you’ll need to check out:

  • Chocopologie

  • Norm Bloom and Son
  • Pasta Presta
  • Tilden Seafood + Prime Meat Market
  • Wings + Things

Presenting the 2nd Annual Bull N’ Brew, poster by Eric Fritch

If you’re a doggie lover like us, the stories of Karuna Bully Rescue will have you all teary eyed. But, the good news is, you can do something to help by getting tickets to the awesome Bull N’ Brew event on May 19 in Wilton, CT.

Bugsy Malone, up for adoption. Click through to find out about him and to see more pics.

Why it’s important to help out: 

Annie spent most of her life in a family’s backyard, heavy chain around her neck, weighing her down.  Through rain, through snow, through sleet she stayed there.  Even through Hurricane Irene, she stayed there, chained up with no hope of ever seeing anything except the tiny backyard.  She was left there, to die, when the family moved…well, until Karuna Bully Rescue of New Haven, CT stepped in.  They took her in, got her all fixed up, and was able to adopt cute Annie out to a loving family.  See her rescue story here and check out her growth as a free loving doggy. Stories like these come to Karuna Bully Rescue  every day, and as you can see, being able to take in, foster, care for, and support rescues is no easy feat.

Jake, the Pit-uation, is up for adoption too! Click through to find out about him.

How you can help out:

Lucky for you, helping out is much easier than the job these wonderful people do every day. It’s as simple as stopping by on Saturday, May 19th at 6 pm at Ambler Farm in Wilton.  Tickets are $50 via PayPal to fosterfund@karunabully.org or $60 at the door.  And, all proceeds go towards Karuna Bully Rescue, too, so there’s no middle-man.  Just needy doggies getting what they need to be healthy, happy and 100% adoptable.And, it’s a win-win situation! You can look forward to live music from Tim Palmieri & Friends and Like Violet, wine, food from SUPER DUPER WEENIE, a silent auction, and a raffle.  And, beer.  What kind of event would Bull N’ Brew be without beer?  They will have local craft beer from Thomas Hooker (CT) and Blue Point Brewery (Long Island), as well as a keg of home brewed goodness.  They’ll be tapping “Pit Bull Slobber,” so you best be there to help empty that keg.

Please direct questions to info@karunabully.org and help these wonderful people and doggies out!
