Event Summary

Dog Day Afternoon combines some of our favorite things here at Free Times: live music, tasty craft beer and cute furry animals!

It’s no secret that Columbia rescues have some of the cutest available pets in South Carolina. Now is your time to grab a pint and meet the newest furry love of your life. Already have a pet of your own? No problem! Bring them, too.

This event is free to the public, but your ticket gets you access to our bottomless beer mug featuring River Rat, Columbia Craft and Steel Hands brews! Buy early and save! Tickets will increase on the day of the event.
