It's no coincidence that one of the only words you can form from the letters in booze is zoo. No, really, it's totally deliberate; people love to get liquored up around caged animals. And the Denver Zoo, 2300 Steele Street, is only too happy to provide them the opportunity. That explains tonight's Brew at the Zoo and Wine Too, which takes place from 6:30 to 10 p.m. And after nine years of hosting the event, the Denver Zoo has sent every guest home with all their limbs intact.
Nearly 2,000 attendees are expected, and those who show can choose from thirty restaurants and breweries, including Rock Bottom, Flying Dog, Lefthand and New Belgium, be entertained with live-animal demonstrations and boogie down on the Tower of Light and Sound. Tickets are $50 in advance ($40 for zoo members), $60 at the door. Proceeds go to the Red Apple fund, a scholarship program that provides access for individuals who can't otherwise afford the zoo's educational programs and animal exhibits.

Fri., Sept. 7, 6:30-10 p.m.
