Wonder Bar Announces 2019 Yappy Hour Schedule

The Wonder Bar in Asbury Park is kicking off the summer season a little early with the grand opening of its most popular event: Yappy Hour!

Grab your best friend and head out tomorrow (April 6) from Noon until 7 p.m. at the Wonder Bar’s outdoor Yappy Deck (1213 Ocean Avenue, Asbury Park). The Yappy Hour’s grand opening is open to guests and their dogs to enjoy treats and beverages (for the humans, of course!)  while benefiting the Asbury Boardwalk Rescue.

The bar is rolling out the red carpet this year with updated treats and features, including twelve swimming pools for dogs, an agility course and even a special time out area for those dogs who need a space to unwind or spend some time with their owner getting used to the fun. There will be an entrance fee on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Memorial Day Weekend until September, with proceeds benefiting the rescue group for special events and on the remaining dates,the Asbury Boardwalk Rescue—a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing care for the homeless animals of Asbury Park and the surrounding area.

The bar will also bring back popular fundraising events supporting the Monmouth County SPCA and other organizations with Bullypalooza and Pugapalooza returning in April and May.

The grand opening will feature food and drink specials for guests 21 and up, and the event will also be selling Yappy Hour 2019 season passes for $60.00.  Sundays in the summer will feature outdoor live acoustic bands on the Yappy deck.
