Dog Days Bar & Grill: 2014 Year in Review!

Well folks, it's official... After months of planning, shopping, and counting down the days, Christmas is finally here! With Christmas this week and New Year's just around the corner, all of us at Dog Days Bar & Grill wanted to dedicate this blog to a 2014 recap. 

2014 has been a pretty stellar year, to say the least. From amazing bands to record-breaking dogs, we certainly made our fair share of memories from the summer of 2014!


Who else remembers the biggest and best outdoor concert at the Lake of the Ozarks? Our cove was packed with boats and people ready to relax, grab a few drinks, and listen to amazing music. We were joined by 80s cover bands Women of Rock, Revelation: A Tribute to Journey, Members Only, and Hells Bells: America's #1 AC/DC Tribute Band. Hard to believe that so much awesome could fit into one cove! 

Canine Cannonball

Canine Cannonball is one of the Lake of the Ozarks' best annual events, and this year it was better than ever! We always have some pretty impressive jumpers, but history was made this year when an ambitious dog named Griz soared to a record-breaking 8'9"! Griz and his owner, Tony Lampert, are from St. Louis. Check out the video of his amazing leap!

Bogeys & Beer Golf Tournament

Dog Days is proud to be an annual sponsor for the Bogeys & Beer Golf Tournament. This year, we helped raise money for the Lamb House, CADV, and Kid's Harbor. Participants were able to choose from a variety of different sponsorship levels so they could help provide for families in need. 

Poker Runs

We participated in three awesome poker runs this year - Spring Harbor Hop, Fall Harbor Hop, and the Shootout Poker Run. Participants got to enjoy a full day on the water at their favorite restaurants at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we loved getting to be a part of their great time!

In-Water Boat Show

This event happened all the way back in April, but it certainly deserved mention, too. We were thrilled to host tons of different brands and vendors at one of the Lake's best annual events. Attendees were able to get everything they needed to prepare for another epic summer - and have a great time while they were at it.

What a wonderful year! We're already counting down the days to each of these events next year. In the meantime, though, we're excited to celebrate the holidays with all of our friends and family. Merry Christmas and/or Happy Hanukkah to you and yours! We hope your holiday season is filled with merriment and joy.
