The 2nd Yappy Hour at Aqimero took place Tuesday at the latin inspired restaurant in the Ritz Carlton, and didn’t disapoint as many guests brought their dogs.
From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., guests enjoyed Aqimero’s lush ambiance and happy hour cocktail menu (margaritas, mojitos, wines by the glass, draught beers and draught beers) as well as some adorable drinks made especially for the event like the “Berry Good Boy” (made with muddled strawberries and Manatawny Stillworks’ Three Bitches Vodka [At Manatawny Still Works we love our dogs. A portion of all proceeds from our Three Bitches Vodka sales go to No-kill animal shelters ]). Guests “Yappy Hour” include fresh oysters, guacamole and wild mushroom flatbread.
