Update: 2014 tix are now on sale!
Feeling a little bit wild? Are you hungry like the wolf? Parched enough to drink gallons of brews and wine by lapping them up with your tongue? If this is the case, then we’ve got the perfect event for you: Beardsley Zoo’s Wild Wine, Beer & Food Safari 2013. This year the rumpus happens on Saturday, June 8 from 6-9 pm. Click here to get your tix at either 1 for $55, 4 or more for $50 each, or pay $60 at the door…assuming there are any tickets left. And, if you’d like a special experience and would love to really give back to Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo, you can buy a “Behind the Scenes” VIP ticket for $100 which gives you special experiences with animals from 4:30-5:30 before the event even begins!
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:
- Addeo’s Italian Ice
- The All American Valley General Store
- Carl Anthony’s Trattoria
- Cucina Di Carla
- Chili’s Bar & Grill
- Dew Drop Inn
- Frankie’s Diner
- Hacienda Villa
- High on the Hog
- Luigi’s Italian Pastry
- Rocco’s Pub & Apizza
- Tony’s Huntington Inn
- Trader Joe’s
- There are also more restaurants and caterers expected, up to around 20 total.
Plus, there will also be a raffle and a silent auction. Here are some of the things that you could win:
- A week in the Cape
- Two tickets to see the Barenaked Ladies at Mohegan Sun
- A weekend in Vermont, staying in a beautiful log cabin
- Brewery & winery your passes
