The entire point of having a dog in Bushwick, one might argue, is to troll effortlessly for pussy or “dick.” From Lone Wolf to Pine Box, no one is getting laid in this town without the assistance of an unwitting canine. That’s why it comes as an unfortunate blow to most Bushwickians’ sex lives to learn that the Department of Animals in Bars Control has decided to ban the presence of dogs in all establishments that serve alcohol.
Instead of taking this fight lying down (which is what most Bushwickians are accustomed to), one local dog has decided to take action. Frankie Quintard, a half chihuahua, half pug–or chug for those in the breeding game–was unwilling to be kept out of the bar scene, not just for the sake of his master, an unnamed mogul, but for the sake of his own enjoyment and lust for life. Frankie commented, “I like beer, I wanna keep hanging out.” That’s why he decided to open up his own dog bar, exclusionary of all bipedal types.
The name of the bar, Drinks at Tiffany’s (named in honor of one of his exes), has left many local canines wondering if it’s supposed to be a dive or a classy place for cocktails. Let Frankie set the record straight: “This is a place for people who like a good time, uh, we’ve got a sodastream and a full bar, so mixed drinks or cocktails or whatever shouldn’t be hard to make.” Frankie added, “I was gonna call the bar Doggy Style, but I thought, no Frankie, no. Take the subtler approach.” Drinks at Tiffany’s is located on Central Avenue near Willoughby Avenue. There’s no address on the front, but you’ll know it by the smell.
