This fancy pop-up sushi bar for dogs proves we’re now subservient to our pets
Ditch the canned dinner and take Rex to a slick sushi bar just for dogs. (Yes, we’re talking about real, quality fish. Jealous?)
Poochi Sushi, a dog-only sushi pop-up is opening in Auckland, New Zealand, according to Concrete Playground. Opening for one day on Dec. 3 in Parnell’s Heard Park, the pop-up will feature three sittings of 10-12 dogs per session, with each sitting organised by pup size — imagine watching a Pomeranian attempt to get a look at an Alaskan Malamute party. Not happening.
The pop-up is being organised by Auckland not-for-profit group The Big Dog Walk With Lots of Dogs (actual name). Dinner will cost $15 per pooch. On the menu, sushi and sashimi using Marlborough Sounds-sourced king salmon and hoki from the coastal town of Coromandel. La di da.
Because 2017, dinner will include a pooch-friendly “beer” called Pawl Ale, according to the publisher. This won’t exactly be like the time a Buckingham Palace footman got Queen Elizabeth’s corgis drunk, but close enough.
But maybe your dog has earned it, you know? Maybe they’re a good pooch fired from the CIA for not being a narc? A lifeguard puppy who saves kids from drowning? A hard-working doggo who’s also a hotel concierge?
