Say Auf Wiedersehen to Oktoberfest with one last weekend-long event at Dat Dog!
October 24th and 25th marks the 2nd Annual Oktoberfest Weekend at Dat Dog Magazine featuring live music, Abita Oktoberfest beer on tap, German Bratwurst dogs and our famous Canine Costume Contest.
Friday’s festivities include: live music by Miss Claudia and Her Bier Gartners from 6-9pm in the authentic European beer garden, the once-a-year Oktoberfest German-style Dog (lightly smoked, thinly ground pork sausage with sauerkraut, diced onions and yellow mustard) and $1 off all German beers (there’s 5 of them!)
The festivities continue Saturday at 6pm with the famous Canine Costume Contest featuring hilarious categories such as ugliest dog and best matching owner/dog costume. Local celebrity guest judges will award winners with Dat Dog gift certificates and other prizes.
Many of you will already know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And by now, you’ll probably also be familiar with the fact that we love to support a good cause. That’s why, throughout October, our 3 stores will be offering the the following specials throughout the whole month to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation in New Orleans. One dollar from each item sold will go to the foundation’s ongoing efforts to fight breast cancer in the New Orleans area.
The NOLA Goes Pink Dog, $7.95 - A traditional pork wiener with shredded cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes and chipotle mayo.
The Old Fashioned Home Made Nectar Soda Float, $5.00 - The Old Fashioned Home Made Nectar Soda Float, a homage to the classic K&B recipe with a hot pink color and honeyed almond flavor.
Dat Dog on Freret’s Second Annual Devon Walker Day will be taking place tomorrow and will be raising funds for the Devon Walker Fund, to assist with care and medical attention for former Tulane University Safety Devon Walker, who sustained a severe spinal cord injury in 2012.

We’ll have a special ‘Devon Walker Dog’ on the day where $1 from each dog sold will go to the Devon Walker fund. We would also welcome any additional donations throughout the day. Devon will be heading in himself during the afternoon so make sure you come say hi!
