Hotel ZaZa Unleashed Poolside Pet Soiree

Those who long for dog-friendly nightlife can head to the Hotel ZaZa Unleashed Poolside Pet Soiree today. It's an outdoor fest held in the hotel's lush "urban oasis," a sultry pool area featuring cozy lounge chairs and Romanesque pillars, where you and your pet can enjoy canapés and cocktails (though you might want to keep Fifi away from the wine). If you're picturing a Paris Hilton-worthy celebration of superficiality, you're mistaken: Proceeds go to the Houston SPCA, which saves thousands of unlucky animals each year from abuse and abandonment. Toast your pet's good fortune from 6 to 9 p.m. 5701 Main. For information, call 713-639-4510 or visit www.houstonspca.org. $50.
Thu., June 18, 6-9 p.m., 2009
