'Open clubhouse' at Ruff Club this weekend

From the EV Grieve inbox ... from East Village resident Danny Frost, who's opening the Ruff Club at 34 Avenue A... dubbed "a social club for dogs."

We're having "Open Clubhouse" events today and tomorrow from 11am-4pm. Folks can stop in for a coffee and tour our space, meet our staff, and apply in-person for membership.

We'll likely do a couple more of these ...After tomorrow, for the next couple of weeks we'll be open only for events and temperament screening appointments.

After the holidays, our daycare (off-leash play areas) and social club (the dog-friendly space with coffee and wifi in the front — picture the front bar room at Mo Pitkins / Aces & Eights with the bar intact but with a lending library instead of alcohol) — will be open 7am to 9pm weekdays, and we are still working out the exact weekend schedule. Boarding will be available 24/7/365.

Here's their website.

Heh, I had a job interview here Sunday. Got my rejection letter a few days ago. The space looks nice and I will likely know most of their clients. I hate awkward job interviews and their dog was barking at me the entire time I was there. Not sure I can handle 30 dogs barking at me non-stop all day so probably for the best. Their loss as I would have promoted the hell out of the place on my blog and brought in business for sure..very curious to see what happens. They seem like nice people and this is a huge undertaking in an unlucky spot. We will see what happens!

We stopped by yesterday and liked the place. Exceptionally nice people, and the place looked good. Curious to see if this takes off.
