“Roar & Pour,” a new event at the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society, will debut on June 7, 2014, from 4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Live music, food, and drink service starts at 5:30 p.m. in the Fountain Plaza, and the party goes until 9:30 p.m. Guests can expect amazing up-close animal encounters and zookeeper talks. Live bands with different music themes will be featured each week, and some Roar & Pour events will feature “Tap Takeovers” from popular South Florida breweries. The Zoo will have some café tables and chairs in the Fountain Plaza during Roar & Pour, and guests are invited to bring folding lawn chairs for comfort while listening to bands.
"The previous evening events at the Zoo have shown us that people are looking for weekend evening alternatives to the typical bar, restaurant or movie scene, so we're launching ‘Roar & Pour’ this weekend,” explained Ron Brooks, Events Manager for the Zoo. “The event starts with a great Zoo experience, including up-close animal encounters and then it turns into a party in the Fountain Plaza with a live band, cash bar with frozen drinks, and great food!"
