In Las Vegas, Rumor Boutique Hotel’s successful Yappy Hour, launched this summer, will continue this holiday season with a series of special events. The new event series, where dogs and their owners mingle, frolic and party at Rumor Boutique Hotel will feature special celebrations for Halloween (the Howl-o-ween Spooktacular), Thanksgiving (A Doggone Thanksgiving Dinner) and Christmas (A Canine Christmas).
Yappy Hour — The Holiday Edition kicks off on Thursday, Oct. 27 at 6 p.m., with the Howl-o-ween Spooktacular. Sponsored by Sniffy & Company, the event will feature one-of-a-kind, pet-friendly events and activities, including a Doggie Cakewalk and a variety of canine costume contests. Guests and their dogs can also walk the red carpet where guests can purchase a paparazzi-inspired photo for $5. A portion of the photo proceeds will be donated to the Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. A number of local pet-rescue organizations will also be on-hand for the pooch spooktacular.
In addition to the tail-wagging fun, the Howl-o-ween Spooktacular will feature creepy cocktail concoctions and drink specials. Sniffy & Company will offer a Doggie Dining Menu so each pooch can dine with its owner.
The Yappy Hour Thanksgiving event, A Doggone Thanksgiving Celebration, will take place on Nov. 17, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., and the Christmas event, A Canine Christmas, will take place on Dec. 15, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
