And today is the last day to enter the contest to name Do at the Zoo's specialty drink, and win two tickets to the June 19 party, a 25th anniversary celebration featuring food from more than sixty restaurants, live music and a menagerie of cocktails.
The drink was created by the beverage director of Green Russell and Bonanno Concepts from ingredients donated by Republic National Distributing Company.
You can suggest names on the Do at the Zoo Facebook page through June 10; the Zoo will announce the winner soon after. In the meantime, tickets, $175, are still available for the Do at the Zoo, but fair warning: It often sells out. Find more information here.
