It's time to pair a cocktail dress with a pith helmet and head to Zoo Miami for the 2011 Feast With the Beasts this Friday, March 4, from 8 p.m. to midnight.
The annual fundraiser for the Zoological Society of Florida promises to be a fun night filled with food, drink, and wild and slithery surprises. Bengal tigers will watch people for a change while human guests enjoy food from 40 of South Florida's best restaurants and caterers, including Chef Adrianne's, Bonefish Grill, and Sawa Restaurant and Lounge. Eight open bars and a full dessert and coffee buffet will ensure everyone has their fill of treats and cocktails.
Expect special guests when handlers bring out furry and scaly friends for photo opportunities.
From 10 till midnight, the night gets extra-wild with Ron Magill's dance party, where guests can break out their best moves on the dance floor. Our suggested dance for the evening: the funky chicken.
A Feaster ticket costs $175 and allows you access to the party from 8 till the end. VIP Feaster tickets cost $225 and also include a cocktail reception from 7 to 8 p.m. To order tickets, click here.
