Animal House

Get out your safari chic, but keep it cocktail comfortable, because you will have a wild time at tonight’s Feast with the Beasts at Miami Metrozoo. Presented by the Zoological Society of Florida and Metrozoo, the gala will treat guests to savory samplings from more than 40 fine restaurants and cocktails from eight open bars. Attendees are encouraged to walk the zoo grounds and mingle with the animals (the real ones, not the gorilla who has been hitting on you all night). There will also be extravagant raffles, live music, theatrical performances, and animal art throughout the zoo. And if you are looking to go ape-wild, purchase a VIP Beastkeeper ticket for access to an exclusive lounge preparty, private seating areas throughout the zoo, and special door prizes. Proceeds will benefit education and conservation programs at the zoo. The Beastkeeper preparty begins at 7:00, followed by the main event at 8:00.
Fri., Dec. 1, 8 p.m.
