Central 214 Goes to the Dogs

blythe beck and dog
Chef Blythe Beck wants you to adopt this dog.

About 150 people showed up to Hotel Palomar last night with their pets to sip beer (people), sniff butts (dogs), and eat cheeseburgers (both). Naughty Chef Blythe Beck was feeling rather nice as hostess of the patio picnic to honor her recent rescue dog, Sheriff, and raise money for Operation Kindness.

A puparazzo snapped pics of dogs and their owners on the red carpet as they entered the party. Later, while guests mingled, Beck made the rounds, touting the assets of adoptable dogs, including a terrier mix named Nisha (pictured). The crowd laughed when she said that her dog means more to her than “boys, food, or vodka.” Seems that plenty of party-goers could relate.

A blow-up kiddie pool provided canines with relief from the heat; a breeze kept the human crew cool. The evening wrapped up with a raffle of fluffy pet beds, self-cleaning litter boxes, and a hotel staycation for the lucky owner of a white Havanese.

    We adopted two puppy brothers from Operation Kindness Hq three years ago. Today, together they weigh 180 lbs., but they are their own best friends, they have a huge yard and a swimming pool, and we have their undying love. Worth every piece of furniture they ate.
