Get Out: 1/2 price Maryland Zoo tickets today

penguin time!Remember that list (real or imaginary) of all the things you wanted to do this summer?

I make mine in April or May, and then, when summer is in its last gasps, frantically try to cross everything off the list. I'm just a deadline guy, I guess.

Today's weather forecast is lookin' good, lookin' great, and the Maryland Zoo is slashing ticket prices in half every Tuesday this month.

That's what I call synergy.

Don't let the end of summer be a bummer. Do the Zoo, boo.

Will there be beer there? When is brew @ the zoo? It used to be great but waiting in a line a half hour for a beer is aggrivating. Let alone almost getting eaten by a tiger because the bathroom lines are too long.

We have one more half price "Zoosday" left this month - join us!

For Tif: We don't sell beer on a daily basis, sorry! Brew@the Zoo is held on Memorial Day weekend as our kick-off to summer. It's a two day event now, and the wait for beer has been cut drastically as the sampling is now unlimited and the pours are a bit larger than in the past. Join us next year for that event!
