Alcohol & Wild Animals;)

We've gone the last couple summers & had a blast! We will meet inside the front gate.

Adults are invited to rekindle their childhood love for the Detroit Zoo at an after-hours adults-only event called Summer Zoomance on July 11, 2013 and August 22, 2013. The 21-and-over evenings will be held 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., rain or shine. Adult beverages and favorite nostalgic foods will be available for purchase.

Summer Zoomance will feature cash bars so guests can enjoy an adult beverage while strolling through the Zoo, complimentary tram tours, animal enrichment and zookeeper talks, live music at Rackham Fountain and rides on the Tauber Family Railroad (additional $3 per person).

Zoomance July 11, 2013: Admission is $12 if purchased in advance by July 5. Tickets are $14 after July 5 and at the gates the night of the event. Parking is $5 (parking is free for Detroit Zoological Society Members). Tickets for Summer Zoomance can be purchased in advance online or at Window One at the front of the Zoo.

You are responsible for your own ticket purchase, and can pay for them here...

    There was a question regarding the time....although the event is actually from 6-9, I scheduled us meeting at 6:30 as the last few times we have gone there have been lines, people couldn't get there early from work, and it just seemed to work better. Feel free to get there earlier if you'd like, you can always meet up with us later. We have also broken up into smaller groups in the past once we get going as there is a band, drinks & food available, and of course the animals:)

      There is also an event called Zoobrew in the fall, but it tends to get dark early.

      Yes Matt, I went to that one last year & was very disappointed as you couldn't walk around to see the animals as it was too dark, they actually kept you from going too far very early. Everyone ended up being up front where the bands were, and it was packed for drinks since that was where everyone was. Beer was good though, lol! So I personally will not be having an event for that one:)
