Let’s go, party animals!

Where would you rather hangout, the lion’s den or the monkey bar? On Friday, June 17 from 6 – 10 pm, you can choose at the Houston Zoo, where you can have a howling good time horsing around, listening to music, and sipping on some of the finest ales the city of Houston has to offer.
“We’re celebrating the ‘20s this summer – the 1920s,” the zoo writes on their website. “Step back in time as we celebrate the decade that the Houston Zoo became a Zoo in 1922 at our next 21 and up event. Enjoy the Zoo after hours at our Roaring ’20s-themed After Dark presented by TXU Energy.”
“Our H-E-B Lone Star Pavilion will transform into a speakeasy lounge where you can enjoy a live dueling piano show, capture the moment at our photo booth, and more. Break out your best 1920s attire and pay homage to this decade in style!”
But that’s not all, partygoers will also be able to feed the giraffes, catch up with other animal residents, take a spin on the Wildlife Carousel, and get the chance to explore the zoo’s Undersea Discovery exhibit. Here, visitors can walk into the jaws of a Megalodon, acquaint themselves with other prehistoric megafauna, and get a glimpse at some of the most spectacular marine species that exist today.
After Dark: Roaring ’20s takes places at the Houston Zoo from 6 – 9 pm on Friday, June 17. Tickets to this wonderful event are now on sale on the zoo’s website for $45. This purchase includes one beverage, as well as access to the Underseas Discovery exhibit. Other food and beverages will be available for purchase throughout the event.
