The Mesker Park Zoo and Botanic Garden is one of the most family-friendly destinations in the Evansville area and a great bargain too especially if you are a Zoo member which we are. My kids love strolling around the Zoo and they especially enjoy 'Boo At the Zoo' which is the perfect Halloween warm-up. Another great event that is just for the grown-ups is the Zoo Brew which is set for June 9th from 7-10pm. The Zoo Brew allows you to stroll through the Zoo and sample as many as 25 different beers and wines as well as food samples from over 20 area restaurants that will fill you up in a hurry.

There is also live entertainment along the path which makes for a unique and fun night out for mom and dad. A souvenir sampling mug is provided to all attendees upon arrival and the event is sponsored by Toyota.

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the gate the night of the event. For $50 you can get A VIP ticket which includes special parking, access to the Discovery Center which is air-conditioned and exclusive food and drink stations. There are a limited number of those tickets and when they are gone...they're gone!

All attendees must be at least 21 years of age and Unity taxi will be available for free cab rides home in Evansville and Newburgh. You can purchase your tickets online by clicking here or you can get them at the Zoo gift shop. All of the proceeds benefit the Evansville Zoological Society, a non-prfit organization supporting the Zoo's mission. Get your tickets now and my wife Lisa and I will see you there!!
