At the beginning of the month I had the pleasure of attending “Animal Attractions” at the Cleveland Zoo in the Rainforest! I went with my better half, and we met up with his co-workers from Cleveland Magazine and their significant others! It was Thursday, February 7th from 6-9pm. There was a variety of food samplings from some of Cleveland’s finest restaurants including; Great Lakes Brewing Co., Amp 150, the Cleveland Cupcake, and House of Blues. Open bar sponsored by Sam Adams isn’t a bad thing either.
The rainforest was completely open so we got to see monkeys, bats, turtles, a porcupine, an anteater, and a Capybara (which is the world’s largest rodent we later learned) and many other little critters. We attended one of the wine and food pairing sessions, which had Jacob’s Creek wine. The food was amazing! It was really fun. 106.5 the Lake was there with their Plink-o game board which you could play to win prizes. I shockingly was the only one who managed to break it, my Plink-o chip would fall out every single time! I still won a prize any way, and made it onto their web-site. Shawna and I were also photographed by the Plain Dealer and made it into the paper and on the web-site, it is a very nice photo I must say!
Animal Attractions was a great event at the Zoo, and we had a great night with friends, great food and some exotic animals! It is definitely one you should look into attending for 2014 especially if you’re feeling the love next February!
