Dogs In Breweries, Patio Weather and More Food News

Posted By on Tue, May 1, 2018 at 10:15 AM

Brews 'n barks  

Most breweries and restaurants allow well-behaved, leashed pups on their patios. But last week, Gov. Ralph Northam signed a bill that will allow dogs inside Virginia breweries, wineries and distilleries. Currently only guide or guard animals are allowed inside booze-making facilities. The new law, which will go into effect July 1, will give establishments the freedom to set their own rules and allow dogs inside at their own discretion.

Sandwich niche

Been missing those gigantic sandwiches since Black Sheep closed its doors last year? A new restaurant soon will take its place, and two local rockers are at the helm. Valient Thorr's Herbie Abernethy and Iron Reagan's Rob Skotis have teamed up with restaurateur Josh Novicki to launch Cobra Cabana, a dive bar that'll serve up diverse sandwiches with a side of rock 'n' roll and G.I Joe cartoon references. We'll keep you posted as the guys get closer to their estimated late summer opening.  

Drinks with a view

It's outdoor drinkin' season, and Julep's is capitalizing on the finally beautiful weather. As of last week, the downtown Southern restaurant's new patio is officially available for seating, where the full menu is available. The patio is quaint and small, so be sure to get there early in order to snag a seat.
