All pet owners are invited to bring their furry friends to The Thumb, a barbecue bistro, gas station and car wash in Scottsdale, on Sunday, Jan. 8, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a new, free, outdoor Barker’s Market Pet Festival.
Barker’s Market will be held once a month and feature dozens of local vendors showcasing pet products and services. The Thumb will sell special Barkuterie Boards on Frisbees for dogs. There will also be dogs available for adoption with P.A.W.S (Pound Animals Worth Saving).
The Thumb is a Scottsdale landmark that is best known for its award-winning barbecue, bakery, car wash and artisan gift market, as well as a feature on “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.” Opened in 2012 inside a gas station/car wash, The Thumb has become an unlikely but popular destination for barbecue in the Valley. There is also a large, outdoor dog patio featuring complimentary dog treats.
The Thumb is located at 9393 E. Bell Road. For more information or to inquire about becoming a vendor at the Barker’s Market, call 480-513-8186 or visit thethumb.com.
