It's the annual Zoo Rendezvous, where members of the Memphis Zoological Society pay $200 a ticket to sample food and liquid refreshment from more than 80 local restaurants and bars, including Big Foot, Amerigo, Texas de Brazil, Bari Ristorante, the Melting Pot, and Tsunami. Guests will groove to The Disxtraxshuns/Funk de Ville, The Kathryn Stallins Band, the Bouffants, Doc Shots, and other musicians. Besides all that, they'll be offered the "Ultimate Tailgating Experience," courtesy of Jim N Nick's Bar-B-Q.
Sounds like a swell time -- if you're a zoo member. If not, you can sign up, and join the party next year. Call 333-6757 or go to www.memphiszoo.org.
