Wild Beasts, Wild Wine, Wild Fun


Stephanie and I had the pleasure of attending the Wild Beasts, Wild Wine, at the Detroit Zoo.  

I didn't know quite what to expect from a wine tasting event, especially at the Detroit Zoo.

Each person that purchased tickets for the wine tasting received 10 tickets.  I was expecting it to be a very small pours. I was wrong and very thankful that I had purchased a Designated Driver pass for my husband.  The Detroit Zoo was very generous with the amount of wine that you received.

The tone at the Zoo was very cool and retro.  The bands that played were amazing.  Below is Ben Sharkey, with Stephanie and I.  Handsome isn't he?  Oh, but that isn't the best part.  This man can put Michael Buble under the table with his smooth voice.
I get it, your need to hear his tunes for yourself.  Check out his website at http://www.bensharkey.com/.   Don't you agree?

Stephanie had the pleasure of going to school with him.

Stephanie and I were feeling pretty great towards the end (we had designated drivers), so we decided that it would be a grand idea to ride the carousel.  I was excited about this because it's a new attraction at the Zoo.

My husband raced around the whole carousel to make sure he got to ride the eagle.  Yes, he is still a kid at heart.  He took this picture of us having a grand time.  What a wonderful idea to have a carousel open to ride during the wine tasting.

Would I recommend this event?  Yes, yes, and yes.  The vibe was amazing.  I did feel under dressed.  I  wish I would have worn a dress.  I so will be back next year.  What a wonderful evening with my friends.
