One of our favorite events of the year / D.C.’s biggest and longest running food event is this Thursday! ZooFari (grab your tickets here, folks) is back and looking better than ever. Of course, there will be tons of amazing food and drinks (you can bet all of your favorite bartenders and chefs will be there), but there’s a lot more to the event than drinking in one of the coolest places in the city. There will be meet and greets with awesome animals like the naked mole rat, and some of our favorite sections of the Zoo (like the Reptile Discovery Center!) will be open, but at the end of the day, this event is about raising money to ensure the National Zoo can continue it’s incredibly valuable programs.

To entice smart, cool, funny people like yourselves, the zoo is throwing both a live and silent auction this year, and it is filled with some very awesome stuff. We’ve picked our favorites from both auctions and we hope to see you all bidding like mad.
