Spend the night at the Bronx Zoo at an adults-only sleepover on Saturday

By Tolly Wright

Instead of the usual booming house music blasting from the party next door, this Saturday night (May 6) the only sounds keeping you from catching your z's could be the roars of a lion. Once again, the Bronx Zoo is staying open after dark for a special sleepover party catering to an over-21 crowd. 

The special party includes hors d'oeuvres befitting the exhibits (think cheese and sangria at the mouse house), party areas to go wild at (including a tropical extravaganza by the flamingos) and late-night snacks for those nocturnal munchie hunters. The entertainment features special activities like a paint party, a tango performance and an Instagram scavenger hunt. Guests will also get to see cute animals up-close and check out select exhibits without any pesky kids taking up the good viewing spots.

Bring your favorite flock of friends—the zoo provides the tents (already set up) which sleep four campers—and a sleeping bag. Tickets cost $350 ($315 for members), register here to join the fun-loving herd.
