If you build it, they will come. And heel. And maybe give you a paw shake if you have treats. So it’s no surprise that plenty of East Village dog owners came out with pets in tow for the recent open house at Ruff Club — the soon-to-open daycare and social club for mutts and their masters (respectively) — in its newly decked-out location at 34 Avenue A. There were many happy faces, human and otherwise, at the event as they checked out Ruff Club’s hip bar/seating area and the spacious play room in the back that will soon be home to four-legged fun. No alcohol behind the bar, but they’ll make up for it with good coffee, free WiFi and even a small library for literarily inclined club members. Ruff Club’s husband-and-wife co-owners, Alexia Simon Frost and Danny Frost (at right in photo, with members of their staff), said they’ll be open for business on Jan. 2.
