Enjoy an Evening That Will Leave Your Tail Wagging
âMust Love Pets,â a purrfect event for those looking for love in the city. Bring your furry wingman and celebrate love of all shapes and sizes at the only happy hour in town where face-licking and tail wagging is a must! Bar Rojo at the Grand Hyatt will celebrate Valentineâs in grand style Tuesday, February 12, from 5:00 â 7:00 p.m., including a pet trivia contest featuring questions of the furry kind, so brush up and flaunt your knowledge of all things animal to claim prizes during âTail Trivia,â a trivia contest where all of the questions are tied to the pets that steal our hearts. Dave Rios of KONO 101 FM will emcee the trivia contest, aided by his trusty four-legged sidekick Scout.
The Grand Hyatt welcomes pets and their owners alike to attend âTail Trivia is a team sport, so make Valentineâs a group celebration with everyone you love. Guests can enjoy complimentary sushi selections, drink specials and if youâre looking for love this Valentineâs Day, Must Love Pets will spotlight the Grand Hyattâs Community Partner, the San Antonio Humane Society. Featuring eligible singles looking for âfureverâ love, the San Antonio Humane Society will bring some of its adorable and adoptable pups for you to cuddle and coo over. To mark the occasion, a photo booth with fun Valentine-themed pet costumes will be onsite providing complimentary printed photos and frames of your furry friends.
Bar Rojo, or Red Bar, Grand Hyatt San Antonioâs signature nightspot, features the perfect environment for Valentineâs: a casual-yet-upscale lounge experience featuring high-end specialty drinks, classic cocktails and comfortable oversized seating in a dramatic red dÃ©cor. To put everything in the perfect light for Cupid, âEl Corazonâ (Spanish for âthe heartâ), a hand-blown glass chandelier that serves as center of the bar, will make your heart skip a beat with its beautiful red glow.
With complimentary sushi, happy hour drink prices and furry snuggles, guests are sure to enjoy the evening as much as their pets enjoy belly rubs. The celebration features Bar Rojoâs unique Sansei Sushi menu, combining Latin American influences and ingredients with traditional Japanese sushi preparation techniques and culture. Happy Hour guests can sample items such as Sashimi, Nigiri or unusual Maki such as the Bar Rojo Roll with its combinations of Jalapeno-Cilantro Spicy Tuna, Jicama, Cucumber and Flying Fish Roe, topped with Avocado Crema.
Must Love Pets will include a full cash bar and will feature a special drink for the evening, âLove Potion #K-9, a cocktail made with Stoli Raspbery, Triple Sec, cranberry juice and raspberry sorbet. The drink is served in a chilled, sugar-rimmed martini glass.
