A number of restaurants and other businesses are donating a portion of the day's proceeds to help cover Bad Dog's expenses. Among the restaurants: Young Avenue Deli, River Oaks, East End Grill, The Cottage, and the Half Shell.
Donations are also being accepted through the Friends of Bad Dog website. You can check the website as well for a full list of participating businesses.
