At TheTaste we are more than a little partial to pugs, so much so that we even have our very own office pug Alfie. Naturally then, we were more than a little excited to learn that the Pug Pop Up Café we reported on earlier in the year is now coming to London – within touching distance, with tickets on sale next Saturday August 19th at 9am!
Taking place on Saturday September 9th at the Book Club Café in Shoreditch, unlike other dog-friendly cafés, the Pop Up Pug cafe aims to make the furry little friends the guests of honour, with delicious treats like Puggacinos, doggy muffins, doggy cakes and other pugtastic baked treats. Owners of the perfect little pugs, as well as pugaliers and chugs (chihuahua crossed pugs!) are encouraged to book early to avoid disappointment, and tickets cost £5 with a pug in tow.
Those who can only dream of living the pug life can also attend, at a cost of £10 per ticket, and all proceeds will go to supporting The French and Pug Dog Foundation.
“We are aiming to provide a very positive, memorable experience for pugs, pug owners and pug lovers. We are NOT trying to fit as many pugs into one space as possible!”, said the organisers, The Guildford Pug Meet Up. The group intends to assemble – wait for it – a grumble of pugs, so they can socialise and have a good chin, or tail, wag.
Hopefully the idea will catch on here in Ireland so Alfie and his fellow pugs can bond over Puggacinos!
