ZooLights is happening at the zoo through January 1 but sadly BrewLights is but one night of the year.
It’s hard to make the zoo more fun but beer CERTAINLY doesn’t hurt which is why BrewLights is one of our favorite beer events of the year. And whew boy did some of DC’s best breweries keep the night lit (why this joke?).
Of course you can’t forget the actual zoo part of the zoo! Animals! So many animals! No, we did not give this turtle a beer but we wouldn’t not give this turtle a beer. We got to hang out with reptiles and great cats and small mammals…oh my!
The evening wasn’t all booze and animals (though that is honestly the perfect night). The main event is of course the stunning light show. The zoo really goes all out every year. If you’re like us and can’t decorate an entire apartment building with lights, this is a pretty good stand-in.
