Happy 10th to Zach’s Shack!

A New York dog sized THANK YOU to everyone who’s helped Zach’s Shack reach ten fun years on Hawthorne Blvd. Here’s to ten more! To mark the occasion, we hired 80s hair band Cinderella to serenade us and our dogs. It’s weird, it sounds like they’re saying “Pat’s Dogs” instead of “Zach’s dogs”, but we’ll take it.

New mural out back at The Shack

Peep the new mural! This new wall-sized artwork comes from the hands and mind of Cobb Hoelzer.

The weather’s warming up and that means you should grab some friends and hang out at back at the Shack. Ping-pong’s on, jukebox is rockin’, only thing missing is you, a hot dog, and a beer. C’mon by.

New mural, before, with artist

Zach defeated at ping pong!

Congratulations to table tennis player extraordinaire Candy Yiu for doing the impossible: defeating the house pro, Zach Zelinger, on his own table. A master of the penhold technique, Candy’s unassuming style and perseverance worked deep into the evening until the final tally declared her the victor.

Catch Zach on his day off and win yourself a t-shirt, just as Candy did here.
