Recap of 2012 Wine and Stein at Potter Park Zoo

We had a fantastic time last week at Wine and Stein, Potter Park Zoo's beer, wine, and food tasting event. There were several local beer distributors including Dan Henry and Kent Beverage Company in attendance. Some of the food vendors there included Pizza House, Bake N Cakes, King of the Grill, and Mitchell's Fish Market.

The flow of traffic through the food and beverage booths was smooth and concise, and all the sponsors were friendly and excited to be there. One of the highlights of the night was getting to see the baby tigers playing. They were inside the primate house and visitors were welcome to go in and visit them at their leisure--they are probably around 200 pounds now and just full of energy. The rhino was also stamping around his pen after his dinner, the lion roared for the crowd a few times, and the sleepy snow leopard even greeted folks for awhile.

The evening spent at Wine and Stein was a great time for a great cause, and we were proud to take part it in. Thanks, Potter Park Zoo!
