Brew at the L.A. Zoo
Amidst sounds of snoozing lions, cackling monkeys and exotic birds, cozy up to 45-plus craft brews at the L.A. Zoo’s annual beer-centric bash. Opening the gates after hours from 7 to 11pm, this historical landmark boasts a night filled with live bands, DJ sets, pub-style grub for purchase, close-up animal encounters and more beer than you can imagine (a four-ounce cup and samples are included). Throw back a cinnamon-dusted churro and dance through the exhibits at this 21-plus event. Chances are, you’ve never seen the L.A. Zoo quite like this.
