Bring your plastic bags and haul tail, literally, to the first annual Love Ball. Yeah, 'cause we just know you've been waiting for a classy cocktail affair you can bring your dog to.
Saturday's event, to be held at the Hyatt Regency Bethesda (7400 Wisconsin Ave., Bethesda), is Saturday from 7 to -11 p.m. Expect a "doggy and me" cocktail hour, plus live and silent auctions. Prizes include a four-day, three-night stay at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, gift cards for local dining and entertainment, and of (obvy) plenty of pet pampering packages. Also included is a gourmet four-course meal, an awards program, a doggie bar, an animal communicator (oh, that we oughta see) and a live band.
