The Denver Zoo has nearly 4,000 mouths to feed every day of the year, and that adds up to a hell of a grocery bill. But events like the annual Do t the Zoo gala help a lot toward filling zoo coffers. And this year's Do on June 19 -- the gala's 25th anniversary celebration -- will go extra-big to raise funds for day-to-day upkeep by bringing in popular U2 tribute band Under a Blood Red Sky to re-create the U2 experience on the Conoco Zoo Gardens stage.
Along with UaBRS and some great warm-up acts, the shindig includes food from top Denver restaurants, night-time animal encounters and dancing under the stars.
Do At the Zoo tickets, $175 or $300 for the VIP treatment, are now on sale online -- and it's best to get them early, because the event will most likely sell out, as it has for the last two years.
