A Wonderful, Wild Sunday
Cocktails?Â Brunch?Â A live DJ? Awesome animals?Â Yes, please!Â This was the set-up for the Houston Zooâ€™s Beastly Brunch held on Sunday and it was marvelous.Â The Beastly Brunch and other such events at the Zoo are held by Flock – The Houston Zoo’s Young Supporters Group who do their best to promote public awareness and interest in The Houston Zoo with events such as this one.
TheÂ DJ and the reflection pool created a perfect atmosphere for a Sunday brunch and the weather was superb!Â Cocktail bars, coffee and Sprinkles cupcakes were set up and down the length of the reflection pool with tasty buffet of bruchy eats at the end for everyone to enjoy.Â My coffee was followed by a bloody mary, a mimosa, croissants, various quiches, fruit and cupcakesâ€¦ thatâ€™s right; cupcakes and mimosas at the zoo with a herd of Houstonâ€™s animal lovers.Â Â Bliss.
Not only did The Houston Zoo provide an amazing morning of mingling and gnarly nibbles, but they also brought out some adorable critters!Â I got to meet a chinchilla and a very tiny owl.Â Â Iâ€™m a sucker for fuzzy and tiny creatures and these guys were just too much cute to handle.
It was a great day…
The Beastly Brunch lasted from 12pm-2pm; so afterward we walked off all the deliciousness with a stroll through the zoo, which is always a delight, waved goodbye to our new animal friends and headed home (sleepy, but excited for the next event at The Houston Zoo).
