The Toledo Zoo could be the location for your perfect romantic evening! Valentine’s Day reservations are now available for an exclusive after-hours evening: Valentine Wine and Dine at the Toledo Zoo 6;00 to 9:00 PM Friday, February 14.
Valentine dates will enjoy a chef-designed meal in the zoo’s Arctic Encounter as polar bears and seals swim around the area. The full-service meal includes appetizers, entrees and desserts. Gourmet-paired wines enhance the experience. Ultimate Nights DJs is providing musical accompaniment, and artist Brenda Clixby will add a fun twist. Throughout the evening, she’ll create a painting that will be auctioned off at 9:00 PM with proceeds supporting animal conservation.
Reserve your spot by calling the zoo at (419) 385-5721, Ext. 6001, by 3:00 PM Feb. 13. Online reservations are also available at www.toledozoo.org/vineyards. You must be 21 or older to attend the Valentine Wine and Dine and reservations are required.
Tickets start at $80 for zoo members and $85 for nonmembers. The Toledo Zoo is open daily from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM and is located on the Anthony Wayne Trail, four miles south of downtown Toledo. For information, visit www.toledozoo.org or call (419) 385-4040.
