8. WHAT'S IN A NAME?
Back in the day, the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show was nicknamed "The Garden," because of the event's location at Madison Square Garden, which was originally called Gilmore's Garden. The founding members of the show used to stay at a hotel called The Westminster in New York City. This was (allegedly) how they came to establish the notable name we all know today. This year, not only will the show take place at Madison Square, but it will also add a new location: The Piers. The Piers is a huge exhibition space overlooking the Hudson River.
