DOG DAYS OF SUMMER
Dog Friendly Restaurants
Austin has hundreds of pet-friendly restaurants so you don’t have to leave your furry friend home when you go out!
Shake Shack– They have their own dog menu! Yard Bar – Combination bar and dog park with “bark rangers” and agility equipment.
Bangers – Pet friendly and even co-hosts adoption events with Austin Pets Alive.

Google Inc. has signed a lease for an entire 35-story tower that has started construction just east of the Central Library in downtown Austin, according to a commercial real estate source with knowledge of the deal.
Google declined to comment on the transaction, or on what it means for the company’s plans for its Austin operations. As of this past August, Google had more than 800 employees in Austin.
Austin-area brokers and Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce officials say the lease deal would seem to signal a major commitment to the Austin market by Mountain View, Calif.-based Google, which is one of the world’s largest companies.
