Zoo Brew

Once again, the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium will be opening its doors to craft beers from around the country and you’re invited to partake.

Friday, September 16, starting at 6 p.m., you can view the animals, eat food and drink some awesome craft beers.  Some of my favorites will be there, including Duck Rabbit, Leinenkugels, Terrapin and Great Lakes, and other awesome breweries, like Duquesne, who I haven’t been able to drink yet, will be there as well.

Also representing Pennsylvania will be Yuengling, Penn and Rivertowne.

You even get a commemorative mug to take home with you!  But more importantly, this event helps to support the animals and the outreach programs of the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium.

Check out more details and purchase tickets here, hope to see you there!

Pittsburgh Zoo at it again

And I love it!

Whoever is in their social media department deserves a raise:

See the rest of the series here and my post about their awesome Twitter feed here.

Sadly, it looks like someone in a legal department had a hissy fit.  Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

Another great Twitter feed to follow

May I suggest that you follow the Pittsburgh Zoo on Twitter:

This also allowed me to use the “Charlie Sheen” tag.  I feel fulfilled.

Friday afternoon mental health break

For your Friday afternoon mental health break, I would just like to add how much I want my own special playground with slide!


While the rest of the ‘Burgh was desperately trying to stay warm as the wind chill dipped to -4 degrees, a few of the penguins at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium got to go outside and enjoy the weather. As part of the zoo’s animal enrichment program, designed to give animals new sensory experiences, aquarists take the penguins outdoors when the weather is appropriate, letting them play in the snow and enjoy a small penguins-only playground behind the aquarium, complete with a tiny slide.
