Dear Carmencita: Dog Night & Pet Portraits

July 20, 2018 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm Dear Carmencita Pop-Up Bar

Don’t forget the dogs! Back for it’s 4th iteration, our pet-friendly property invites four-legged family members into the bar for a night of pet portraiture.

6-8:30pm – Pet Portraiture with Pinots Palette
$10 | Must pre-register below by Sunday, July 15* | Limited Availability
Commissioned paintings of the Gilded Age weren’t always moguls and divas, but also beagles and dachshunds. Pinot’s Palette brings their most popular class, Project Pet, to our hotel. Designed for beginners, the class features step-by-step guidance from the art team who will share techniques for painting backgrounds, realistic fur, and even wet noses.

*Pre-registration has closed. The bar will remain open for regular service, and non-ticketed attendees are encouraged to observe!

Dear Carmencita will open for regular service at 5pm. Leashed pups are welcome the entire night!
