Bring a date or come to find one during Cocktails and Love Tales, a fabulous evening benefitting Franklin Park and Stone Zoos! Mix and mingle in the exclusive and luxurious lounge at the House of Blues Foundation Room, sip cocktails, sample tasty hors d’oeuvres, and dance to the tunes spun by DJ Kevin Cusson of C-Zone Entertainment. Attendees will receive a complimentary glass of wine, thanks to Barefoot Wine and Bubbly.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, this 21+ event will feature a talk, from 7:00 – 7:30 p.m., by Dr. Rory Browne, zoo historian and member of Zoo New England's Board of Directors, highlighting animal courtship and mating rituals.

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?

Join us for titillating tales from the animal kingdom because, when it comes down to it, there are more similarities than differences between people and their non-human relatives!

When the talk is over, practice your newly-learned courtship skills on that cute guy or gal you’ve been eyeing across the room … and maybe even land yourself a last minute date for Valentine’s Day. Proceeds benefit Zoo New England’s Franklin Park and Stone Zoos.

Guests will also have the opportunity to order from the Foundation Room’s full menu for an additional price.
