Thursday, November 12 6-8PM

BookPeople & Austin Pets Alive! Present

Instagram Sensation The Dogist
Elias Weiss Friedman

for a special Yappy Hour
at the Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co.!

(Not required, but very helpful!)

Bring your pups and join BookPeople and Austin Pets Alive! down at the Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co. Thursday November 12 at 6PM for a special Yappy Hour with instagram star The Dogist, a. k. a. Elias Weiss Friedman. Mingle, chat and have a drink or two with Friedman as he signs copies of his adorable, cannot-resist new collection of photographs, The Dogist. Every portrait in this book tells a story and explores the dog's distinct character and spirit. Themed sections include Puppies, Cones of Shame, Working Dogs, and Dogs in Fancy Outfits. Stick around, and we'll all pose for a great, big group photo. It'll be a blast for pups of all ages and people 21+. 


Elias Weiss Friedman grew up near Philadelphia, in a big family of brothers, sisters, cousins, and dogs. After graduating from Boston University in 2010, he moved to New York and held a job at a major brand strategy agency for two years. But after a round of layoffs, he wanted something more authentic and creative to take on. Inspired by his circle of friends in New York City’s startup culture, he decided to combine the two things he has loved since childhood: photography and dogs. Friedman created the wildly successful blog and Instagram feed, @TheDogist, in 2013.
