Yappy Hour Celebrated at The Westin South Coast Plaza

The Westin South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa recently offered dog owners a chance to socialize and sip cocktails while their pups mingled over special treats.

The dog-friendly hotel opened its doors that to dog lovers for Yappy Hour in celebration of the Year of the Dog. This four-legged version of Happy Hour was held in the hotel’s Waterfall Terrace area in collaboration with Lunar New Year celebrations at South Coast Plaza.

Hotel guests and the general public attended the event by themselves or with their well-mannered furry friends.  These pampered pooches enjoyed bacon and chicken infused water, dubbed “dogtails,” plus tasty handcrafted treats from JustFoodForDogs®, and more.

Miniature fire hydrants and artificial turf enhanced the mood. Complimentary appetizers and drink specials for purchase were available for guests. The first ten pooches received a swag bag filled with dog-oriented items.

Proceeds from the event benefitted the Bichon Rescue of Orange County’s Seniors for Seniors dog rescue service and several dogs available for adoption will also be present. The hotel’s dog-friendly policy permits guests checking in to bring along dogs weighing up to 40 pounds. Some restrictions apply.

“We were delighted to partner with South Coast Plaza for this commemoration of the Year of the Dog that highlighted the special connection between canines and their human companions,” said Mike Hall, the hotel’s general manager.
