Brew at the Zoo, April 30
This past Saturday night, you could have removed all wildlife from Zoo Miami and it still would have been overrun by animals: a species known as frat boyalis to be exact. Said crazy mammal was observed square-dancing to Otis Day & the Knights, originally a fictional band in Animal House that's now legitimately touring; participating in beer pong and animal-mating-call contests; and even hot-boxing a porta-potty (we kid you not).
We began the night as sincere beer enthusiasts, doing obnoxious things such as swirling the samples in plastic cups and smelling the aroma. But inevitably the long lines at several stations gave way to a Darwinian survival of the fittest in which our only goal was to secure as many beer samples as possible while avoiding giant crowds. In other words, we ended up drinking a lot of Pabst Blue Ribbon while chatting up the friendly reps in trucker hats offering rides aboard an antique car.
