After a winter whirlwind of a week I am looking to Cleveland for weekend fun. It’s supposed to be warm so the snow will melt a bit, perfect wellie weather…get outside, wear your sunglasses, soak up the cool sunshine. Enjoy.
Here is what’s on my tentaive weekend “agenda” …what’s on yours?
While the weather is chilly outside, why not spend a hot and steamy evening…in the rainforest at Animal Attractions presented by the Cleveland Zoo! Enjoy a Valentine’s celebration while sampling dishes from Cleveland’s favorite area restaurants, sipping tasty beverages and trekking behind-the-scenes for even “closer” animal “encounters!”
Listen to stories and learn more about your Zoo’s wildlife “conservation” efforts as you enjoy presentations from Marc Ancrenaz, Director of the Kinabatangan Orang-utan Conservation Project in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo (KOCP), and Cleveland Metroparks Zoo staff: Geoff Hall, General Curator; Dr. Chris Kuhar, Curator of Primates & Small Mammals; Jim Nemet, Education Specialist & Staff; and, special guest speaker Joe B. Keiper, Curator of Invertebrate Zoology & Director of Science at The Cleveland Natural History Museum.
Some of the participating restaurants include Blue Canyon, Cleveland Cupcake Company, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse, Hoggy’s Restaurant & Catering, Paladar Latin Kitchen, Sammy’s and Sans Souci.
