Ever dream of eating a romantic meal with your pooch at Le Cirque? The Post reports that you can make it happen: All you have to do is dress your pup like a service dog, complete with a fake vest and I.D. tag, and lose your dignity. The Americans with Disabilities Act forbids businesses from demanding a dog's credentials, so apparently it's easy for New Yorkers to game the system. Le Cirque even brings out a special doggie water bowl. [NYP]
