Fetch a calendar and bark the dates for Yappy Hour, the monthly cocktail party for canines and their companions at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel. Posh pups, haute hounds, and dapper doggies will enjoy complimentary house-made dog biscuits and refreshing libations, thanks to bacon, chicken, beef and vegan water, while their companions sip a glass of Mutt Lynch Unleashed Chardonnay, Merlot Over and Play Dead, or Chateau d’Og Cabernet Sauvignon. Cocktails, beer and a selection of barbecue items are also available for purchase. Supporting the resort’s Community Footprints program, proceeds from Yappy Hour benefit The Veterans Initiative™ of Canine Companions for Independence.
