May 27, 2011 By: grant Category: Events, Travelin'

If you miss tonight’s Zoo Brew at the Memphis Zoo (or if you just like drinking with animals), head on down to the Fourth Annual Brew at the Zoo in Atlanta. Tickets run $35 for members and $40 for nonmembers if you get them online by midnight tonight. Tomorrow they’ll be $45. The event runs from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. tomorrow.

Those tickets get you unlimited sampling of a variety of beers and wines; up-close-and-personal encounters with the animals; and rides on the train and carousel. There will also be music and other entertainment.

The event supports care for the zoo’s rare reptiles.
