Leave the kids at home and enjoy an evening at the zoo!  Located in Apple Valley, the Minnesota Zoo is offering an after hours, adults only event Friday July 28.  From 6 to 9 p.m., you can tour zoo exhibits including Russia's Grizzly Coast, Minnesota Trail and Kangaroo Crossing.  My favorite, the African penguin exhibit, will also be available for tours.  Cost is $10 per person.  Food and beverages will be available for purchase.  You must be 18 years or older to attend, 21 years or older to purchase/drink alcoholic beverages.  The Minnesota Zoo is a smoke free facility.  Advance reservations are required and can be made on the zoo's website or call 952-431-9200.  Sounds like a great time!
