Georgia has so many events that it can be hard to keep up with all of them. To narrow it down, the best ones are those that are 21 and up. Zoo Atlanta is holding a boozy safari just for adults in September and you will not want to miss out on it.
On Sept. 21, you can go on a Sippin' Safari at Zoo Atlanta. This event is only for those of legal drinking age and up, so you will not have to fight crowds of running children. You will be able to drink some of the best wine from local locations right here in Georgia.
There will be wine sampling, food from all different local restaurants and live music all throughout the zoo. Once you enter the zoo, you will not have to take your wallet out again because all the tastings are included in your admission. While you won't be going on an actual safari, you will be taking a walking safari throughout the zoo to see all the animals.
It is like getting a behind the scenes tour of the zoo. You will be able to take your time looking at all the exhibits they have to offer, while sipping on wine and beer. This even includes the newest habitat, African Savanna. You might even see the new baby gorilla and two-toed sloth named Nutella, that have found their new homes.
Throughout the habitats, there will be many stages where live bands will be playing. You'll hear beats from The Regulars, DJ Empress Rah, Chelsea Shag, Emmy Law, The Jump Cut and The Scullin Fraser Duo.
You have two experiences to choose from: General Admission or VIP. With a general admission ticket, you will get entry into the actual event from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., all the different wine and craft beer samples and snacks from the food vendors. It also includes your entry into the various animal feedings and talks throughout the night.
With the VIP experience, you will get early entry into the night's event. Instead of entering at 6:00 p.m., you will be able to get in at 5:00 p.m. There will also be an exclusive lounge with air conditioning and premium wine and beer. An exclusive T-shirt from the event is also included.
Things might get a little wild at this event, but remember that these are the animal's homes and to respect their sleeping hours and habitats. This is a great event to attend to close out your summer fun.
