Part of the Cincinnati Zoo’s Toast to the Wild series, Wild About Wine is a super-popular after-hours party that invites the public to wander the zoo grounds while sipping on glasses of vino.
After listening to feedback, this year’s event features extended hours, more zoo access and a larger selection of drinks to sample. Each ticket includes access to zoo exhibits, 12 drink samples, a commemorative wine glass, a welcome beverage, animal encounters, live music and a meet-and-greet with conservation scientists.
Food will be available for purchase with menu options found online.
Drink responsibly and try to keep the monkey business to, well, the monkeys.
6:30-9:30 p.m. Thursday. $50 non-member; $30 DD; VIP sold out. Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, 3400 Vine St., Avondale, cincinnatizoo.org.
