Aqimero at the Ritz-Carlton asks animal lovers to meet up for happy hour on Tuesday, Aug. 15, in support of North Wales' Hemlock Edge Animal Rescue, an organization dedicated to rescuing homeless, abandoned and abused animals.
"Since their start in 2013, the rescue has saved more than 500 at-risk animal lives from storm-ravaged, impoverished and kill shelter areas," a press release from Aqimero states.
The Latin restaurant's "Yappy Hour" event will run from 5-8 p.m. A portion of the proceeds from happy hour drinks sold will go to Hemlock Edge.
The selection is wide-reaching, too. Happy hour-goers can sip on margaritas, mojitos, wine by the glass or draft beers.
There will be a signature drink, too. The "Berry Good Boy" drink, made with muddled strawberries and featuring Manatawny Still Works' Three Bitches vodka, was inspired by the distiller's own dog Piper, who was adopted from Hemlock Edge.
Raffle drawings will take place throughout the night as well, with proceeds supporting the rescue shelter. Guests can put their name in for gift baskets and gift certificates.
And for animal lovers who are looking for a new furry friend, adoptable puppies will be joining "Yappy Hour" attendees for a special meet-and-greet.
