Things to Do in the City with Dogs: Taste of Latin America Festival

While many people think there aren't many activities to do with big pooches, we've been able to find a lot of things we can all enjoy as a family. Last weekend we took the pooches out for a newer festival in west Logan Square: Taste of Latin America. Because loving food is something we all have in common.
The festival had a huge variety of local restaurants including food from: Cuba, Venezuela, Argentina, Belize, Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Mexico.
Which gave us a lot to try.  We had everything from Cemitas Pueblas to Sweet Bread to Agua Frescas (Hibiscus and Tamarind!), Arepas, Panades, and Platanos. Plus some jarritos, churros and coconut ices.
We had come in the afternoon, and we liked it so much we came back for dinner (we were so full the first time around and there were still things we wanted to try!).
The afternoon was a bit empty with no lines, but things were a lot more crowded in the evening which can be hard for the pooches. E stayed with them on a curb while I got the food. This actually helped them meet more people.
It has also been really fun running into people who know the pooches from the blog. We've been meeting so many people lately; thanks for saying hi!
