It just got easier to pretend it’s still summer at Park-9 Dog Bar. The year-round indoor dog park + bar in Everett has announced a residency with Big Pig Barbecue, who’s setting up shop at Park-9 for the next three months.

The North Shore food truck will park outside the 10,000-sqft business to serve Southern-style smash burgers, nachos, prime brisket, pulled pork + chicken, collard greens, mac ’n’ cheese, and loaded fries. Menu items designed specifically for pups are also in the works.

Hours for the pop-up are from 5 to 9 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, and 12 to 9 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Break out your boots for Park-9’s special Country Fest Weekend this Saturday, Jan. 27 + Sunday, Jan. 28, which lassos live country music, mechanical bull rides, and specialty cocktails.
