Ever wished you could enjoy Central Park Zoo’s small, but perfectly curated grounds without all those crying children clamoring for the best views? Think you could really understand the majesty of the penguin’s signature waddle if only you could be tipsy in their vicinity? Well, at Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) Central Park Zoo’s first ever Brew at the Zoo on May 20 and May 21 there will be plenty of monkeying around as you “learn about the birds and the beers” with two nights of zoo booze.
This adults-only after-hour party features suds from 30 different craft breweries, DJs spinning dance-worthy tunes, a photo booth and lawn games like corn-holing. You can also chow down on food like hamburgers and fish tacos, but watch your seafood carefully—the sea lions might start begging if you get too close to their pool. While most of the animals will be off limits during the event—they have to get their beastly rest—the zoo is bound to be wild experience under the stars.
General admission, which includes unlimited beer samples, a souvenir glass, and access to the photo booth will set you back $49.99. If you want a chance to see the animals as well, and watch the sea lions dance, flip and high-five for their supper, VIP tickets start at $69.99. Purchase them here.
