Let Your Valentine’s Go to the Dogs!
From Puppy Love to Fur-ever Love, Enjoy Love of All Breeds at Grand Hyatt’s “Must Love Pets” Tail Trivia Valentine’s Happy Hour
Calling all canophilists and ailurophiles! Looking for the purrfect event to enjoy your Valentine’s Day? Wondering what a canophilist and an ailurophile are? Then you must attend “Must Love Pets,” where the Grand Hyatt will 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 Valentine’s in grand style Thursday, February 6, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., including a pet trivia contest featuring questions of the animal kind, so brush up and flaunt your knowledge of all things wild to claim prizes during “Tail Trivia,” 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. (By the way, canophilists are those who love dogs and ailurophiles love cats.)
With complimentary sushi selections, drink specials and more fun than you can shake your tail at, Must Love Pets will make you howl with delight, especially if you’re looking for love this Valentine’s Day. Thanks to the Grand Hyatt’s Community Partner, the San Antonio Humane Society, you can go home with the fur of your dreams: eligible, adorable and adoptable pups looking for “furever” love will be on hand for you to swoon over and perhaps make a love connection of your own.

Read on to learn the answers to the above questions and start studying for the contest!
Putting “The Heart” Into Valentine’s
Bar Rojo, or Red Bar, Grand Hyatt San Antonio’s signature nightspot, features the perfect environment for Valentine’s: a casual-yet-upscale lounge experience featuring high-end specialty drinks, classic cocktails and comfortable oversized seating in a dramatic red décor. To put everything in the perfect light for Cupid, “El Corazon” (Spanish for “the heart”), 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 Rojo’s 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 special drinks for the evening, such as the Love Potion #K-9.
Looking for Love in all the Right Places
If you’re looking for the perfect setting for a romantic night, take advantage of the Grand Hyatt San Antonio’s Romance package, designed to rekindle your love with the ultimate in pampering services. And thanks to the Grand Hyatt San Antonio’s pet-friendly policy, your furry friends are welcome to get away with you, leaving you no excuse to stay home.
The Purrfect Answer for Your Valentine’s Celebration
So canophilists and ailurophiles, study up for Tail Trivia. The Basenji is the only dog that can’t bark but it is known to make a sound resembling yodeling. A kindle is a group of kittens. The underside of a horse’s hoof is called a frog (and the frog peels off several times a year with new growth). The Canary Islands were not named for a bird called a canary—they were named after a breed of large dogs. The Latin name was Canariae insulae, or “Island of Dogs”.
And if you knew all of these answers, you’re a shoe-in for Tail Trivia! And you probably know that compared to non-pet owners, people who own pets live longer, have less stress, and have fewer heart attacks, so grab your friends, celebrate your healthy love of fur and come to Must Love Pets!
