POTLUCK WITH ZOO CREATURES
Halloween animal mask/costume contest too!
(Costumes are Optional)
You are responsible for you own entrance fee & that of your guest. Lots of Free Parking available. Kids 11 & under get to enter for FREE during the month of October (see below for available discounts & price of admission).
Take the kids, your parents, friends, lovers… what have you, or just yourself to experience the worlds most famous zoo, The San Diego Zoo. We will hang out as a group, eat as a group and take breaks as needed.
Everyone must bring a "HEALTHY LUNCH ITEM"* for the Potluck that will be enough to go around. *(Not looking forward to a table full of cakes, chips & cookies.) Bring your own drinks or purchase them at one of the many food booths.
The costume contest will take place during the potluck. That way if you chose to you can remove the costume before venturing deeper into the wild animal kingdom. BTW the S.D. Zoo does have several of their own contest going on for the month of Oct., including photographic ones.

There are several activities happening at the zoo, visitors can feed the Giraffes, see the Maned Wolf Keeper Encounter, & Meet-Up with a Meerkat. I'd like to partake in feeding the giraffes from noon to 1pm. For $5, you can hand feed them 3 nutritional biscuits. Purchase tickets at the Urban Jungle ticket booth from 11am until all 100 spaces have been sold.
There are at least four other Meetup Groups in my invite, so I look forward to many of you joining us for a fun filled "Multi-Meetup.com Group Event." To me this is a wonderful way to introduce one another to a common interest stemming from different facets of Meetup.com. Should be filled with adventure, knowledge & fun. Bring a hat, sunscreen, change of clothes, jacket, camera, binoculars…
When RSVPing please tell us what food item you plan to bring & please pick out three locations you would like to visit from the following link of a map directly out of the zoo's website:
