The Sacramento Zoo’s big summer blowout is back again and promises to top last year’s food and drink extravaganza. The King of Feasts, a wine and food luau party for the community, brings together the best restaurants, caterers, bakeries, wineries and breweries from around the region to serve up plentiful samples of their wares for zoo guests right there in the zoo. Guests can enjoy appetizers from Mulvaney’s B&L before strolling over to watch the chimps swing around their exhibit or can toss back a sampler or two of Sierra Nevada beer while gazing at the giraffe exhibit. Musicians and dancers will be on-site to perform Hawaiian music and dance, and guests can grab a hula hoop and practice their hula skills at the Tiki Lounge by the Reptile House. While not specifically a 21 and older event, this is definitely the most grown-up way to browse the zoo. With wine and beer vendors sprinkled throughout the entire zoo, guests will be able to relax and enjoy the animals in ways not possible during the zoo’s regular hours. All proceeds, naturally, go to the zoo so that they can continue to protect animals and educate the public about wildlife. So go wild; it’s for the animals. More information here.
