Of course you love your dog, but come time for a glass of Cabernet, and the conversation tends to fall a bit flat. Pourtal is stepping in to take care of your canine’s needs so you can focus on your human needs for a night. The Santa Monica small plates and wine bar is offering a free dog walking service tonight called “Woof Wednesday,” for anyone with a mutt who spends $20. While you sniff, sip, and nibble away, Fido will do roughly the same, taking a stroll through Palisades Park, and possibly making a love connection along the way. Pourtal is using Big Sky Dogs as their dog walker of choice, a company that is “fully bonded, licensed, and insured” (though not necessarily neutered and spayed). Call Pourtal at (310) 393-7693 for reservations.
