RED BANK: A NEW BREED OF NETWORKING

RB-DOG-DAYS-073013-8The Dog Days of Summer are back, as the monthly promotion for four-legged visitors (and their human handlers) returns to Monmouth Street on Tuesday evening.

When the idea was first floated last year, Red Bank Mayor Pasquale Menna called the promotion known as Dog Days of Summer “a great community-building event…I think it’s going to put us on the map.”

Following through on plans hinted at last month, Menna said an event dubbed ‘Dog Days of Summer’ would begin Tuesday, July 30 and repeat on the final Tuesday nights of August, September and October, concluding with a Halloween party of sorts for domesticated critters.

“This is a special themed event for pets that includes humans,” said Menna, owner of an 11-year-old white Labrador retriever named Bella.
