Never in our wildest dreams did we think having a bottle of Prosecco with primates could be a reality. It's a rare experience when the Houston Zoo closes its doors to the kiddos and allows adults to bask in the summer air with a fizzy drink. On August 15th, from 6-10 p.m., you can attend All About That Bubbly at the Houston Zoo. Tickets have been marked down to $29 (if you purchase online) for an end of summer special, but act fast because these tickets go quick!
Sometimes it's necessary for us grown folks to treat ourselves to an escape where we can forget about our mountain of responsibilities and just bust a chill with a few exotic animals. And to be honest, when the sun starts to set and the temperature begins to drop, the animals really come alive. This is your chance to see the amazing crop of animals like you may have never seen them before.
Your ticket to the event will grant you access into the zoo located inside Hermann Park, and parking usually isn't a problem unless it's a crowded weekend. Once you get into the event you'll receive a complimentary glass of prosecco or champagne, and if you're feeling fancy, there's an upgraded drink option including the French 75, to add a bit of variety to the evening.
The event allows participants to roam freely about the zoo from 6-8pm, ride the carousel and explore the Dinosaurs At The Zoo exhibit for those looking to curb their Jurassic cravings.
Sadly, animals don't stay up as late as us humans and will be put to bed for the night at 8 p.m., but the party doesn't stop there. From 8-10 p.m., it's time to chill out and enjoy the setting at The Reflection Pool, there you can mingle, relax, and enjoy your own private zoo party.
The Houston Zoo is a huge property with seemingly endless things to do and discover, so if you think you've experienced the zoo for everything it's worth, think again.
