Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong and Anna Marie’s trip to the zoo. (a post by Anna)

Last Friday we attended Feast with the Beasts at the Houston Zoo. As the name suggests, it was a night filled with good eats and animals. One of my favorite aspects of this evening was the humans dressed up as animals.

Lee made a friend.

Pretty sweet giraffe costume, eh?

I’m not sure if it was the massive crowd or darkness, but as soon as we entered the zoo, I lost all sense of direction. Luckily our treasured friends Betsy and Lee are zoo experts and were able to lead us to both cuisine and creatures.

Food samples please me to no end.

We had an awesome time hanging out with animals. What we didn’t realize until we later checked our camera was that Lee and I somehow caught a case of crazy eyes.

Crazy Eyes Mimms with a chinchilla.

Crazy Eyes Smith with a giant rabbit.

Crazy Eyes Mimms and Smith unite among the giraffes.

Crazy Eyes Mimms with the American kestrel.

All crazy eyes thankfully subsided when elephant impressions began.

After successfully gorging on food samples and petting various animals, we headed towards the main event: a performance by the Spin Doctors!

Turns out we were the only people freaking out about the Spin Doctors. Luckily we were able to cut a rug and show the crowd how to enjoy 90s music.

Lee couldn't contain herself.

There, in the middle of the zoo, the Spin Doctors didn’t let us down.

Two Princes!

Needless to say it was a memorable night at the zoo!

  1. i need to go to the zoo more!

  2. megan, i had to double-take the chinchilla handler b/c i thought it WAS you!

    looks like a super fun night, even if megan wasn’t there… can’t wait to see you ladies and maybe get myself onto this blog!!!

  3. I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU SAW THE SPIN DOCTORS. AT THE ZOO. that totally beats the time i saw third eye blind at sxsw. because, yes, there was awesome kinda-washed-up 90s music, but were there WILD ANIMALS? no. no siree.

    • Yes, the zoo is seriously one of the best concert venue I’ve ever experienced. The diurnal animals were a little confused about the super loud music, but they were willing to make some sacrifices for the Spin Doctors. Soooo good!
