Get ready to enjoy a kid-free night at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago with craft brews, live music, and hangout with some incredible wildlife!

This is my favorite event that happens every year in Chicago; Craft Brews at Lincoln Park Zoo.  My sister brought me one year for my birthday and it's everything I didn't expect.  It was crazy that I was getting drunk and chillin' with monkeys.
