Barkamor: A Dog-Focused Fundraiser and Yappyhour

June 21 @ 5:30 am - 7:00 pm

Newton’s Baramor is taking outdoor dining to the next level by bringing back its fan-favorite dog-friendly charitable series. For a few nights of light-hearted outdoor fun, Newton’s charitable American restaurant, Baramor, will be transforming its outdoor patio space into the ‘Barkamor’ pop-up experience to raise money for Jr’s Paws for a Cause.

Featuring multiple rotating dog-related vendors, interactive activities such as pet portraits and ‘match-your-human’ contests, drink tastings from various local breweries, distilleries, and cideries, and rotating dog-friendly food menu items with $3 donated to the non-profit partner, the Barkamor experience offers enticing pampering opportunities for all the “good boys” in our lives…and their owners as well. Don’t have a dog? Get the chance to adopt one at every Barkamor event! Each pop-up will feature a variety of rescue dogs looking for loving homes.

Some of the charitable dog menu specials may include the Dog Pizookie, a playful twist on Baramor’s human-focused dessert pizookie, featuring a pile of Milk-Bones topped with whipped cream, the Mutt Mojito for dogs to experience full-on vacation mode, with streamed and pureed zucchini, peas, and mint serves as ice cubes, and the Good Boy, a peanut butter and banana smoothie for your good boy to lick tirelessly. Baramor’s regular menu will be served alongside the dog specials for hungry pooch parents that also wish to indulge.

In addition to food items, we will be featuring Tito’s Handmade Vodka in three different cocktails at every event, with $3 per cocktail purchased being donated directly to the cause.

“We have seen a lot of outdoor patio spaces being utilized across the Greater Boston Area recently, but not many of those spaces are dog-friendly. Here at Baramor, we hope the Barkamor pop-up events will let locals know their dogs are always welcomed & encouraged in our outdoor space! We think we could all use a little fun, and what better way to bring fun to the Newton community than letting our pooches tag along!” said Baramor Owner, Arpit Patel.

Polkadog Bakery will sponsor this pop-up event and will include a some interactive game for your pups. Looking to adopt? Brown Dog Coalition will be on site with a few wonderful rescue dogs. And for all owners in need of a drink, Barewolf Brewing will be on site as a sponsor, offering up free tastings and beverage industry knowledge. In addition, the non-profit partner, Jr’s Paws for a Cause will be selling clothing, collars, leashes and other merch available for purchase.

While the Barkamor events hope to encourage dog appearances in outdoor venues, Baramor’s outdoor patio will remain dog-friendly all patio season long!
