Beer is usually my beverage-of-choice on a night out, but next Thursday, August 9th, wine is the preferred drink at Woodland Park Zoo in Phinney Ridge. The second tasting flight of the summer, this wine tasting event doubles as a fundraiser for the zoo while providing a great atmosphere to enjoy a glass.
$25 In advance and $30 at the door gets you 10 tastings from more than 30 wineries, along with live music and “real close” animal encounters at the zoo’s North Meadows and particularly at the penguin exhibit. There will be food available for purchase, as well as full bottles of wine to take home from the participating wineries.
IMPORTANT: This is a bring your own glass event. As odd as that sounds, it’s part of Woodland Park Zoo’s commitment to sustainability and I highly support this! So bring your favorite wine glass and enjoy the event! You can purchase your advance tickets on their website here.
