Yappy Hour at Ritz Carlton in Dana Point

September 28: It’s the Ulti-Mutt Dog Party with pooches, hounds and pups of all sizes romping and playing on The Dana Lawn. Canines enjoy complimentary hand-made dog biscuits and lapping up refreshing libations, thanks to bacon, chicken, cheese, beef and liver flavored water, while their companions can purchase burgers, brews and wines, with proceeds going to support the Laguna Beach Animal Shelter. Fun times! Thursday, 5-8 p.m. One Ritz Carlton Drive, Dana Point. (949) 240-5038. www.thediamondball.org/yappy-hour
