Lincoln Park Zoo Chicago #Nightatthezoo MY Final Thoughts
I found the event fun. I did however personally thought the event was a little pricey not to include a drink and or a food ticket. Food and drinks can be purchased separately. Events like Grits & Biscuits and The Makossa Cookout are a little less costly. The group that puts the event on says a large portion of the proceeds benefit Lincoln Park Zoo and helps the zoo stay free and open 365 days a year. So for that reason, I’m going to give them a pass on the cost of the event ticket. I believe the pricing is tiered. The closer to the event that you purchase your ticket the more it cost. Honestly, my friends and I purchased our tickets the week of. I was also happy there wasn’t the large crowd you would get on a regular day at the zoo. No kids! This may be one time was I happy to adult with other adults! I had a good time. This was something I had been wanting to do for a while and I glad I did.
