SEX AND THE CITY ZOO, A Wildly Romantic Valentine's Event
While the Los Angeles Zoo is best known as one of Southern California's most family-friendly destinations, it's ADULTS ONLY for "Sex and the City Zoo," an extraordinary Valentine's Day event celebrating romance in the animal kingdom presented by the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association (GLAZA) on Saturday, February 8, 2014, 5 to 7 pm, in the Zoo's Witherbee Auditorium. The lighthearted affair begins with a reception featuring tempting desserts, alluring wines and “animal walk-abouts," which include chats with keepers and the chance to observe small animals up close. The heart of the evening opens with a performance by recording artist, musician and entertainer Whitney Hall. Following the musical performance, guests are entertained with a provocative presentation about animal mating, dating and cohabitating by Michael Dee, former Los Angeles Zoo general curator, who offers insights about relationships in the animal kingdom. “Sex and the City Zoo 5” climaxes with an intimate three-course dinner (for an additional fee) at Reggie’s Bistro inside the Zoo. Proceeds from the fifth annual event, generously sponsored by Whole Foods Market West Hollywood, support GLAZA, which funds plant and animal exhibits, species conservation, capital projects, education and community outreach, and many other programs at the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens..
