If you mention happy hour we're always there, but there's something better than meeting at your favorite restaurant for a drink. This October the Phoenix Zoo in Arizona is hosting their Roars and Pours event. If you're 21 and up you can sip on your favorite wine, beer and more while strolling through select trails for the ultimate boozy wild safari walk.
On Thursday, Oct. 10, the Phoenix Zoo will host a 21 and up event from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. that will feature animal encounters, games, live music, food and more! The best part is that tickets are only $10. You can purchase them here. If you can't make it on this day there's another event on Nov. 7.
Some happy hour experiences that cost extra include visiting the Stingray Bay, camel ride, giraffe encounter, and a safari cruiser ride. The extras cost $2-4 each and make your boozy experience even wilder. You can also play games like beer bong, tic tac toe, ladder toss, ring toss, and corn hole. You and your friends are sure to have a fun time.
When you arrive at this boozy zoo you can enter into the Wildest Club in Town raffle where proceeds go to conservation efforts. Raffle tickets are $1 each or $20 for five.
If you're not feeling lucky enough for a raffle you can play chicken poop bingo. If a chicken poops on your lucky numbers you win!
There will be a variety of food items available for purchase including happy hour prices ($5) for beer and wine. You can also purchase your ticket at the gate. It is good for entrance into the zoo, playing games, and entertainment.
