Happy Hour Sports

Want to have some fun and feel like you were a kid again? Then join the Happy Hour Kickball League. We have been a part of this league since the summer of 2007. The Washington Post Express has even voted them the "Best Amateur Sports League" three times in a row. The Barking Dog is proud to be a sponsor of one of the best kickball experiences you will ever have and the parties after the games over here aren't too bad either.

Huge heartfelt thanks to you both for making our special evening so wonderful for the boys and their families. Everyone agreed that it was the best water polo team dinner that we have ever had! The food was great, your organization and set up was superb.
