Hair of the Dog is a wine and beer tasting event created by small business owners Alicia Thompson-Healy and Bethany Stevens for dog people, wine drinkers, beer aficionados, or some combination of the three. Wineries and breweries from the region will offer samples, and pet-friendly vendors will have booths for entertaining furry friends.
Thompson-Healy owns a company Silver Pet Prints Rochester which makes niche customized paw-print jewelry for pet-owners. Stevens's company On the Move Pet Care specializes in professional dog-walking and pet-sitting services. The two women had the idea to create a comfortable space for local pet owners.
Hair of the Dog will take place on Wednesday, June 14, from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park, 353 Court Street. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the event, and $15 for designated drivers. All ticket holders must be 21 and over. 402-9028; hairofthedogroc.com.
