Barks, Bubbles and Brews

Digress Wine, formerly Cavanaugh’s in College Park (1215 Edgewater Drive, Orlando, Florida 32804) hosted Barks Bubbles and Brews along with Woof! Orlando. I had to go to sketch this pet friendly event which was a night to mingle with fury friends while sipping spectacular wines and craft beer.

Woof! Orlando provided goodie bags filled with treats, free nail trim coupons and more.Digress Wine hosted with delicious drinks, food trucks and the perfect ambiance under twinkling lights on their patio.

I ordered a red wine and settled n to sketch any dogs I could. A husky puppy was at the next table and became my subject. Her huge paws indicated how young she was. She spent most of her time tugging at her leash to try and get to the dogs inside Digress. She was a whirlwind of frenetic activity but that didn't seem to phase the couples at the table. The wine helped loosen me up to the challenge of sketching this frantic pooch. I am glad I  went.

Digress Wine is a casual neighborhood wine bar and retail shop that features artisanal wines and craft beers combined with old fashioned hospitality. Enjoy a bottle of wine with friends on the outdoor patio, our indoor lounge, or in our temperature-controlled wine cellar. 

Woof! Orlando is an urban oasis for the pampered pooch. Their award-winning grooming salon is the first Green pet spa in Orlando. A tired dog is a happy dog, so play care is a dog’s dream come true. No waiting around for the humans to return from a long day at work or people play. They also offer boarding.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
