NORTHEAST & NORTH Minneapolis

MPLS PHOTO CENTER

2400 N. 2nd St. • 612-643-3511 • www.mplsphotocenter.com

Yes, the Photo Center allows pups in its gallery. It also has a dog photography exhibit (“Mary Ludington: The Nature of Dogs”) through Sept. 1, so you can peruse the show with your dog at your side. The gallery, which is open until 5:30 p.m., isn’t air-conditioned, though, so you might want to avoid it on the dog days.

ST. ANTHONY PARKWAY OFF-LEASH RECREATION AREA

700 St. Anthony Pkwy., Mpls. • www.minneapolisparks.org

This dog park is heavily woodchipped and is equipped with benches, so you can sit on and chat while your dog runs around. Note: You need an off-leash dog permit, or you could be fined. And bring an old towel so you can clean your dog after all the running/rolling/digging.

THE SAMPLE ROOM

2124 NE. Marshall St. • 612-789-0333 • www.the-sample-room.com

One of the gems of Northeast, the Sample Room’s sizable patio offers much-appreciated shade. The staff will bring out a bowl of ice water for your pup while you partake in delicious wine flights and tasting plates. Plus, Gluek Park is right next door, if Rover needs a bathroom break.
