Cocktails for a Cause: Aqimero Welcomes Hemlock Edge Animal Rescue for a Yappy Hour Event

Aqimero Yappy Hour

UPDATE: They’re doing it again Tuesday, August 15th 6-8PM!

Aqimero is excited to host its first Yappy Hour with North Wales, Pa. animal rescue Hemlock Edge on Tuesday, July 11, 2017 from 5 to 8 p.m.

Richard Sandoval’s Wood-Burning Latin Grill Restaurant is located within the lobby of the iconic Ritz-Carlton on Philadelphia’s popular Avenue of the Arts in Philadelphia. Yappy Hour plans to be the perfect opportunity for locals and guests alike to relax in the comfortable lounge while supporting an organization that does so much for the animal rescue community.

A silent auction will take place with two rounds of winners announced, the first wave at 6:30 p.m. and the second at 8 p.m. when Yappy Hour ends. Guests can bid on donated items such as Phillies box seats, gift cards from local restaurants like Gran Caffe L’Aquila, and much more. Proceeds from auction items will also go to supporting Hemlock Edge.

Hemlock Edge Rescue is a nonprofit 501c3 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. Their primary goal is to properly match animals in need of a forever home with the appropriate families. Representatives from Hemlock Edge will be in the lobby to share what animals they currently have for adoption as well as more information about their mission. A few of their soon-to-be adoptable puppies will also be in attendance for a special meet and greet for attendees looking for the next family member! It’s encouraged that guests leave their own furry friends at home for the night.

Manatawny Still Works will donate their Three Bitches vodka for the night’s specialty drink. Proceeds from the sale of this cocktail will go straight to Hemlock Edge as well as $2 from every other Happy Hour beverage sold. Regular happy hour drinks such as Aqimero’s margaritas, mojitos, wine by the glass, and draught beers will also be available as part of the event.  Food specials will be in accordance with Aqimero’s weekly happy hour menus and will include favorites like guacamole, wild mushroom flatbread, and fresh oysters.

Aqimero promises this Yappy Hour event will serve as a great way for locals to experience the inviting atmosphere, carefully crafted cocktails, and philanthropic nature of the restaurant. Young professionals looking for a new space to frequent will find Aqimero in the Ritz-Carlton an exceptional yet casual option. Dog-lovers and happy-hour-goers will enjoy this kick-off event and can plan on attending more Yappy Hours in the months ahead.
