Each year when October rolls around, I marvel at the number of birthdays that fall during the month. And then I do a little math, count back 9 months, and it all makes sense to what people were doing a lot of the previous February.
The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo understands that couples like to get close(r) this time of year. So escape the cold and cuddle up at the 10th annual Animal Attractions on Feb. 7.
From 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. in The RainForest, the Cleveland Zoological Society hosts a series of fun and educational presentations about what makes hearts go a-flutter at the Zoo.
A few of last year’s up-close animal encounters included The Mating Game, My Two Dads: Same-Sex Couples in the Animal Kingdom and Sex, Lies and Videotape.
Because wine makes us all a bit more amorous, they’ll also have an open bar and wine tastings from Jacobs Creek along with tasty samples from Cleveland restaurants like:
- Great Lakes Brewing Company
- Duet Catering
- Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar
- The Cleveland Cupcake Company
- Whole Foods Market (Cedar Road)
- Creekside Restaurant & Bar
- AMP 150
- House of Blues Cleveland
Tickets are $55 for Zoo members, $65 for non-members (get a group of 10 together for $550). They can be purchased at ClevelandZooSociety.org.
If you’re a fan of the Cleveland Zoological Society on Facebook, you can also enter to win free tickets at the “Animal Attractions Tab” under their Timeline cover photo. They’re giving away a pair of tickets on February 4th for you and your amour.
