By May 1, 2012 Media No Comments

Hotel Duval, the first and only boutique hotel in Tallahassee, hosts Vintage Vegas, a 60’s style soiree to benefit the Leon County Humane Society. On Friday, June 15, 8 p.m. – 1 a.m., gamblers try their best hand as Hotel Duval transforms into the casinos of a Las Vegas era gone by.

Guests of the event mingle with celebrity look-a-likes from Marilyn Monroe to the Rat Pack while enjoying cigar server’s offerings and hearing the sweet sounds of jazz band, Zach Bartholomew Trio. Fishnet-adorned cocktail waitresses present signature drinks and old fashion hors d’oeuvres as the ballroom is filled with poker, roulette and blackjack and entertainment.

The Leon County Humane Society is Tallahassee’s largest no kill, non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to saving the area’s homeless pets. By educating the community about responsible pet ownership and reducing pet overpopulation, the Leon County Humane Society offers programs like Spay/Neuter, Rescue Ride and Friends Fur Life which promote working together to reduce the homeless pet population in Tallahassee.

High rollers try their luck to win a one year lease on a new luxury vehicle or a trip to Las Vegas. Hotel Duval will provide airfare and accommodations at the new Cosmopolitan, another Autograph Collection Hotel, for the winner and a guest.  Attendees enjoy sumptuous fare, drinks and of course, casino chips for $150 per person.

Home to Shula’s 347 Grill, a sports-style steakhouse offering “The Best Beef that Money Can Buy,” flows seamlessly with the vibe and décor of the property. Hotel Duval’s signature restaurant presents options of gourmet salads, fresh fish and exclusive Premium Black Angus Beef Burgers and Shula Cut Steaks.
