Giveaway: Go Back to the Future at the #ZOOvies

Twilight at the Zoo 2013

Twilight at the Zoo 2013

Sometimes the weather gods try to ruin the best of plans. Perfect example: Our first Twilight at Zoo on Friday night. However, try as Friday’s monsoon might, it couldn’t stop us from having a wild time at the Zoo!

Fortunately before the rain started, we were able to sample some of the food and drink at the VIP party.  We enjoyed tastings from Mitchell’s Fish Market, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and AMP 150 (their crab and salad plates are pictured above).

We also enjoyed a few sips of Fireball and Firefly Moonshine. The Fireball+Angry Orchard mix was so good that I risked running through the storm for some more – it was worth it.

The one downside was that we didn’t have a chance to see a lot of the bands. However, we escaped inside the Primate, Cat and Aquatics building when the rain started, where we made our own fun and visited with some beautiful creatures.

We may have called it an early night, but I now see why it’s the summer party on everyone’s list.  It also didn’t hurt that this year’s Twilight at the Zoo raised $590,000 for the Zoo and its programs!

Fortunately, the Cleveland Zoological Society has
one more party up its sleeve this summer!

On August 23, make a date for the Zoo’s 2nd annual Date Night at the Zoovies.

Date Night at the Zoovies - August 23

From 7-8pm, enjoy free beer, wine and light appetizers while exploring the Australian Adventure and African Savanna sections of the Zoo.

At 8:30pm, it’s “your density – I mean destiny” to bring your blanket and chairs to the Savanna Theater for a viewing of Back to the Future under the night sky.

Hot pretzels, popcorn, candy, beer, wine, soda and water will be available for free during the movie.

    My fave part of visiting the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is a tie between watching any of the adorable primates interracting or feeding the cute little lorakeets the nectar.

    My favorite part of the zoo is all of it! I’ve been coming to the zoo since the early 60’s! I remember the seal exhibit being near the front. You used to be able to feed them fish. Such fun! Now I’m a fan of Clue into Cleveland AND the Zoo! Cleveland is a great place to be in the summer!

    My favorite part of the zoo is feeding the giraffes. We got lucky and happened to be there one day when they were doing it. It was very cool to be that close and check them out.

    Last night, Darth Vader came down from Planet Vulcan and told me that if I didn’t like both pages on Facebook, that he’d melt my brain. So I’m now a fan of both pages.
