From an email:
We’re hosting our annual “Santa Paws” event benefiting the Washington Humane Society on Sunday, December 11 from 2 – 4 p.m. at Kimpton’s Monaco Washington DC.
Guests are allowed to bring their pets (yes…any pet, not just dogs), grab a snapshot with Santa (free with their own camera, or $20 for a framed professional photo with proceeds benefiting WHS), and enjoy homemade gourmet dog biscuits from Poste Moderne Brasserie’s Chef Dennis Marron or hot chocolate, spiced chai, or warm cider in the lobby of the hotel.
Full press release after the jump.
Dress up your four-legged friend in his/her holiday finest and head out to Kimpton’s Hotel Monaco Washington DC for a holiday photo with Santa on Sunday, December 11, from 2 pm to 4 pm. The pet-friendly hotel is partnering with the Washington Humane Society (WHS) as part of the animal welfare organization’s Hope for the Holidays campaign. The event is open to locals and hotel guests, and you will be asked to donate $20 for a professional photo of your beloved furry friend with Santa. All proceeds from the donation will benefit WHS.
The event will take place in the Hotel Monaco Washington DC’s lobby’s living room, which is decorated festively for the holiday season. While waiting for the photo-op, enjoy complimentary holiday-inspired refreshments including spiced chai, hot cider and hot cocoa, and sweet treats from adjacent Poste Moderne Brasserie. Poste’s Executive Chef Dennis Marron will also serve up a house made holiday dog biscuit for pets – a favorite of his dogs, Grendal and Gobi.
Owners who would like a professional photo with Santa will need to register upon arrival. Santa Paws is open to the public and photos will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. Owners who do not wish to participate in the charitable fundraiser, but still take photos must bring cameras to capture their pet in Santa’s lap. Kimpton’s Hotel Monaco Washington DC is located at 700 F Street NW, Washington DC (metro: Gallery Place/Chinatown). For more information please call 202-466-1306.
