Fun-raiser: Wild Wine, Beer + Food Safari 2012 @ The Beardsley Zoo – Bridgeport, CT

19 May


Update:  2014 tix are now on sale!

Isn’t that just the cutest picture you’ve ever seen?  Is he holding up the wine to observe the color before he swishes it around?  Is he raising it as a toast to all animals at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport?  Or, is he ready to down some of the good red stuff?  Well, I guess he could be doing all three.  Maybe he’s just raising a glass to you for coming along to Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo‘s Wild Wine, Beer & Food Safari on June 2 from 6-9 pm.  He doesn’t have any pockets, but he’ll be asking for $55 online (buy here), $50 for groups of 4 or more, or $60 at the event…if he hasn’t sold all of his tickets.

This will be one wild tasting event to be a part of.  Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo will have fun stations where you can get your grub on such as drinks from Wine Emporium of Shelton, as well as local restaurants and caterers.  Because there is alcohol there, you must be 21+ to enter.  Oh, there is more, though, for our fur loving friends.  There will be live entertainment and you’ll have a chance to prance and stomp around Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo to check out all the animals.  Also, put your bid down on some silent auctions like a trip to The Cape, signed sports goodies, theater tickets, beauty packages, and more.  All proceeds from this fundraiser will help the Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo‘s operation, its growth, its educational programs, and its conservation initiatives.

  1. Something Wild This Way Comes: Wine, Beer, + Food Safari Fundraiser at Beardsley Zoo | OmNomCT - May 29, 2013

    […] Like last year (it was very successful and very well attended), there will be plenty of food, wine, and beer (both international and local) to go around.  And, when you’ve had your fill of food and drink, you can trollop or gallop around the zoo, checking out some of the exhibits and the animals (some areas will be blocked off).   So, as for food, you can have the yumminess of: […]
