St. Patrick’s Day isn’t just for the Irish at one local watering hole.

On Saturday, Quincy Hall at 4001 Fairfax Drive will hold its first “St. Paw-trick’s Day” adoption event with Arlington-based nonprofit Lucky Dog Animal Rescue and some adoptable furry friends from 3-5 p.m.

“We have so many neighbors with pups walking by and sitting on our patio that an adoption event with Lucky Dog Rescue was something that we thought would unite our community in support of their noble cause,” said Will Carter, general manager of Quincy Hall.

The pizzeria and beer hall plans to support the cause by donating $1 to the nonprofit for every beer pitcher and spiked shamrock shake sold. The hall will also sell pizza and a wide variety of beer from 40 different taps.

The Ballston-area restaurant invites guests to come out with their little tail-waggers to enjoy the festivities on the patio and get some holiday attire for their pups.

While this is the first time Quincy Hall has hosted a dog adoption event, Carter told ARLnow that he hopes it will not be the last. He is looking to make the adoption event an annual tradition, joining other themed nights the venue has hosted, including a country night and an adult-friendly Easter egg hunt.
