While most of what we write about pertains to food that humans can enjoy, we reserve space for non-human foodie-related items, too. Like this: a doggie dinner party at Dunlay's on Clark, 2600 N. Clark.
The restaurant is hosting a three-course dinner for four-legged guests (and their owners) on its sidewalk patio from 6 to 8 p.m. June 22.
The restaurant's partner in this is the nearby Three Dog Bakery, 2622 N. Halsted, which is providing the food for the event.
The exact courses are yet to be determined, but Three Dog owner/baker Gina Aulisio says the menu will likely include soup, chicken "paw" pie and a cookie assortment. As a starter, she says she'll probably whip up a version of bread and butter -- banana bread shaped into breadsticks and "lickety split ice cream," a spread made with whey protein that, when scooped, resembles butter.
The requested $10 donation for each dining dog will go toward a local animal rescue group.
