Because I love you …

WINNERS!: chose comments #132 and #331, belonging to Sue S. and T. respectively. They have been emailed regarding accepting their prizes.


… I’m giving away four tickets to the Brew at the Zoo!

Brew = Beer!


Drinking beer while looking at wild animals!

What could be more fun in a slightly dangerous kind of way?

The best part of Brew at the Zoo isn’t the fun or the flavor-infused beers or the fantastic food or the chance to have a staring contest with a gorilla (they always win), but it is the fact that this event benefits the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation.

The details:

  • This giveaway is for two pairs of regular tickets (I will be at the beach, so I get to give away my tickets, too!), valued at $50 each. Ticket includes zoo admission, beer tasting, food, and entertainment.
  • The event is Saturday, August 21, 2010
  • This is an over-21 event. You will be carded, unless you are me, and then you are never carded because bartenders and waitresses are evil jerks who refuse to at least PRETEND like I could possibly be under 21.

Related, today I had to select my age range for a survey. I might have wept at the fact that I have graduated to the next check-box.

Where was I? Is this senility? Am I going to want to go see Paul McCartney now?

Right, giveaway.

So, to enter, one comment per valid email address. You have until tomorrow at 5:00 p.m. to enter at which time (which chose comment #64 for the Jeans, Jewels, and Jimmy B giveaway, which was the comment from a staff member at CORO) will choose two winning comments. If you don’t win, here’s where you can purchase tickets.

Leave a comment, and if you’d like, tell me, if you could have any single zoo animal as a pet with the promise that it would never get mad and try to eat you or your loved ones, which zoo animal would you choose?

Me? Definitely an ostrich. It’d be like my wild, fancy horse.


Good luck!

    A snow leopard cub. You know, one just about the size of larger dog… like Black Lab size…big enough to cuddle, still small enough to command some respect from. we’d just roll around and play with balls of string and such

    I’d probably have to say a baby elephant. Because they are for sure the cutest things ever. They’re even cuter in the wild if you ever get the chance to do a safari trip too….

    If we can add to the “not killing or maiming” stipulation “not eating anything and comes with a free 500 acres” I would say an elephant. Because my 2 year old would think that I was the Greatest. Mom. Ever.

    Any animal that’s not a penguin- they smell awful and make tons of noise. Plus it hurts when they peck at you.
