We love our fur babies. Remember their feet when you take them out for a walk. Their little paws can burn.

**June Tip of the month **
Please remember when you walk your fur babies, be mindful of the temps. If possible, walk in the morning or later in the evening. Try to pick a shady route.
***I should also add why this is so dangerous: skin deterioration happens rather quickly at such intense temperatures. Additionally, dogs “sweat” through their feet so imagine how hot they get at these temps.

Milton is getting a new sports bar. Mazzys Sports Tavern - Milton will open this Wednesday at 5 pm.

If you’re into playing pool, arcade games, darts and corn hole, you’ll love this. They’ll have 8 pool tables, 4or 5 arcade games, 4 dart boards and 3 or 4 corn hole games.

And don’t forget about the food. We’ve heard people say their wings are some of the best in town.

There are two other Mazzy’s - Alpharetta Hwy and Roswell Rd in Marietta.

It’s Milton Mom’s Monday!

Mazzys Sports Tavern - Milton opens Wednesday for business.

13695 Hwy 9 North Alpharetta, GA 30004

Mazzys is owned by local residents and they have a few other locations. This location is huge! They have 8 pool tables, 4or 5 arcade games, 4 dart holes and 3 or 4 corn hole games. This would be a great place to have a whole sports team to eat at and would be great for large groups!

They have a patio and a nice fire pit and seating around it in the back.

It is smoke free!

They are making it kid friendly too! Great place for groups of families to be able to eat and everyone have fun!

The samples of food we had the other day were amazing!

I can’t wait to come back and try some more dishes. I will be posting the menus soon!

It is located in the area across from Cue. There is lots of parking here.
