"What, no Mad Dog?"
Though we thrilled to the notion of a beagle bartender responding with a world-weary "Ruff!" when asked by barflies how life was treating 'em, instead we have news that a bar with a dog run (not a dog-run bar, sorry) is looking to open in Orlando.

Pups Pub, currently the spot for very good boys in Tampa, is looking to open an Orlando location at 317 N. Orange Ave., as reported by Bungalower. Possible features of the Orlando Pups Pub iteration would include an indoor play area, a long bar, murals, projector screen and televisions.

Pups Pub's flagship in Tampa offers amenities like a full liquor bar, an indoor astroturfed dog park and video gaming.

The opening date won't be for a while yet, with initial permitting hearings for the space scheduled for October.
