Tails, Tunes & Tastes is Tomorrow Night – Rain or Shine

–Cheyenne Mountain Zoo hosts event featuring music, food and cocktails!–

 
July 26, 2017, Colorado Springs, CO – The first of two Tails, Tunes & Tastes events is tomorrow night, Thursday, July 27!

Tickets are all-inclusive and include beer, wine and spirits, as well as unlimited samples of international delights prepared by the Zoo’s onsite caterer, Taste. Four food stations will be set up at various points around the Zoo. The featured cuisines will be Asian, American, Mediterranean and South American. Additionally, there will be gluten-free and vegetarian options at every station. Local musicians will set the mood throughout the Zoo and have guests dancing the night away until 9:30 p.m.!

No Zoo event would be complete without animals. Most animal exhibits will be open until 8 p.m., so guests can experience the full Zoo experience (minus kids, of course), get hands-on with animals from The Loft, feed the giraffe ($3) and watch special keeper talks and animal demonstrations.

The event will go on rain or shine. All sampling areas will be sheltered from the weather, but guests are encouraged to bring rain gear to walk around the Zoo, in case of showers.

Limited tickets are still available online at $45.75 and will be $50.75 on the day of the event, if available.

Tails, Tunes & Tastes is from 6 – 9:30 p.m. and is a great way to help the Zoo care for and feed more than 750 animals, while also getting to enjoy some great food, drinks and local musicians. For those who can’t make this event, don’t worry – there’s a second Tails, Tunes & Tastes event Thursday, August 31. Tickets for that date are available for purchase online.

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s Tails, Tunes & Tastes is sponsored by Bestway Disposal and the Colorado Springs Independent.
