Wondering how you can top last year’s evening of Godiva chocolates, Merlot and Red Box DVD? Have no fear, we recently discovered a very out of the ordinary idea for impressing your Sweetheart this year while also supporting an important local institution.
This Friday, February 10th, bring your Valentine for a voyeuristic peek into the private lives of animals during Franklin Park Zoo’s Sex at the Zoo lecture and Valentine’s Day themed event. Do animals find each other appealing or attractive? What are the similarities and differences between human and animal courtship? What can the techniques that animals use to attract mates teach us about friendship and romance?
This strictly-for-adults only affair will feature a presentation by Dr. Rory Browne, zoo historian and member of Zoo New England’s Board of Directors, with insights about the pros and cons of relationships versus staying single in the animal kingdom. If you end up flying solo to the lecture, practice your newly-learned courtship skills on that cute guy or gal you’ve been eyeing at The Ledge and maybe even land yourself a last minute date for Valentine’s Day.
$20 per ticket / $35 per pair
