I know its been years and so much as happened but Basil’s Travels hasn’t stopped. For those of you who have been following us on Instagram, you have seen this little gentleman turn grey and never stop smiling. From here we are going to continue this crazy journey and share our life and experiences in this dog-friendly world. Look out for tips and tricks for traveling with your dog, hipster dog locations we recommend, and like 1-million (or like 12, who knows?) dog Halloween costumes.
We love you guys, old and new.
Welcome to the *new and improved* Basil’s Travels!
Last night was our first night in Austin, Texas and we started off with a bang or with a Banger!
Banger’s Sausage House and Beer Garden located on the famed Rainey Street of Austin, Texas is a hipster Mecca. 104 beers on tap, most being local, and sausage for every taste.
Walking by it may just look like an extremely busy residential neighborhood but go into almost any of these “houses” and you’ll find good food, good drink all in a dog friendly atmosphere.
Banger’s was recommended to us by the Travel Channel show Booze Travel. The host Jack Maxwell explored the Austin food scene and sold us on Banger’s.
I enjoyed a classic Bratwurst while Basil had his very own “woof-wurst.”
All the sausages were a hit. Can you tell?!
After we enjoyed dinner we headed deeper into the beer garden. Outside you’ll find a large fully fenced off-leash dog run, more tables, and 2 fire pits.
People where friendly, the service was fast, and food was great. We highly recommend giving Banger’s a try if your in the Austin area.
Check out these photos of last years Christmas tree. We cut it down at Little Switzerland Fraser Firsin Little Switzerland, North Carolina. If you are in the area and need a beautiful Christmas tree make sure to check them out. Great little family farm in the hills of North Carolina. Also, there is a coupon on their website and they are dog friendly! Can’t go wrong!
We are currently super busy getting ready for our upcoming trip to Texas. I’ll be posting for Blogmas while we are there so make sure to check back daily to see all of our adventures. Also, follow me on Instagram for even more fun!
What does your house look like for the holidays? Do you get a tree? Let me know in the comments!
This is Basil’s present face. He notices there is yet to be any gifts under the Xmas tree and wants to make sure we all got his list.
Today I’ll share with you Basil’s Christmas list. He slipped this very list to me just the other day. Can you say needy? Geez!
What Sir Basil Boston- Pants of Fancy-ville wants for Christmas
All the sticks. (10 inches in length or shorter preferred)
A years worth of Puppuccino from Starbucks
New boots. For hiking. I hike now.
A new daily meal between lunch and dinner.
A subscription to Loot Pet. Loot Crate’s new upcoming monthly box for dogs.
Season tickets to see the Seattle Seahawks. Well, better make that a suite because I have delicate ears and the sound at The Clink is really loud.
What do you think? Is this a good list? Has Basil been a good dog this year? What does your dog get for the holidays? Let me know!
Hey Friends! For today’s Travel Tuesday post check out the super dog friendly city of Seattle. Forget about the rain (It really doesn’t rain that much… sometimes) and pack your dog and your bags, Seattle is calling!
Where should we go next? Let us know in the comments! We’re making out plans for 2016 trips and would love to hear your advice.
