On any given day, a costume party in Miami featuring an open bar is likely to end up a zoo of fratty, howling hyenas and sloppy, drunken pigs. So why not just cut the metaphors and party with some actual wild animals? Enter the Monster Masquerade at Zoo Miami. Here, nobody will judge you if your shirt is full of beer stains or youre tripping over your stilettos were talking about a place where residents regularly throw feces at each other and hump in public.
So assemble a crew of party animals, show up anytime between 8 p.m. and midnight this Saturday, and enjoy premium-cocktail open bars, a DJ, dancing, and costume contests all in the name of supporting the Zoological Society of Florida. And make sure to stop by Dr. Wildes Creepy House, a 7,000-square-foot haunted house that is almost as scary as two dudes doing keg stands in gorilla outfits (side note: this is not allowed).
