Lions and Tigers and Beers Oh MY!

Yes. Yes I did say beers. Not bears. Beers.  Saturday night was my goodbye to beer party. OK, really it was Living Social’s Beerfest at the Zoo…but what a way to say goodbye to my gluten-y beer. Amiright?  (Yes, I’m giving up gluten for the next several months [and possibly forever] to find out if I have gluten sensitivity. This is a decision my doctor and I discussed together–kids don’t try this at home…but anyways…more on that later) So we paid a bunch of money to go to the free zoo after hours, drink beer, listen to tunes, and eat snacks (OK, other people paid a bunch of money…Chrissy was frugal and got 3 of her pals to sign up so that she got it for free #lovelivingsocial). Aside from the ridiculous overcrowding and the less-than-worth-it VIP tickets, it was a great time with beer, friends and food trucks.

Of course, 3 days later and I still feel like crap–so maybe this gluten-free thing isn’t such a bad idea…Aaaaanyways.

Unfortunately, sleeping animals don’t photograph well at night with Smart Phones, otherwise you would totally have the cutest most ridiculously adorable pictures on the planet right now. Especially chimpanzees. OMG I love them so much right now. Because they sleep all cute and human like.

So you’ll have to settle for ridiculous pictures of my people.

Beer and Tigers. Yes.

Beer in the cat house? Okay!

Feed the animals beer!

She was brilliant. I copied her idea the rest of the night…feeding beer to the fake statues.

Stupider like a fox

Yep. 30 minutes in and I got in trouble for climbing on the display. It was a platform. Platforms are made to be stood on. I thought. The guy was so flabbergasted like he just couldn’t understand that this entire event was one giant photo op.

Hello drunk ride on the carousel! I don’t know if there’s a happier place to be…Oh other than Disney World.




monkeys and beer

The last animals that I fed for the night. Right outside the ape house.









See. She's brilliant.
