Dogs could be joining diners at S.A. eateries

By Brian Chasnoff
- Express-News

John McClung first noticed it at establishments in Europe and more recently in cities such as Seattle and San Francisco: People were eating on restaurant patios with their dogs.

As co-owner of the North Side restaurant Los Patios, McClung knew it was against state law to do so here.

“But the rules also say that individual municipalities can vary those rules,” said McClung, who's also an attorney, “provided basic health, safety and sanitation are met.”

About a month ago, he brought the idea to City Councilman John Clamp, who was a bit taken aback.

“I said, ‘What? What is that? Are dogs going to have menus?'” Clamp joked.

He quickly came around, and now the city could join Austin and Dallas in mixing its canines and culinary delights. Clamp said Tuesday that council members could approve a dog-friendly restaurant ordinance as early as next month to provide variances from state law.

It is the city trying to escape the consequences of being a city
while still remaining a city. It is urban society trying to eat its
cake and keep it, too.
