Knockin' Paws


The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo's Animal Attractions features food, booze, and TMI about the mating habits of many of the zoo's residents. Appropriately enough, the annual event tied to Valentine's Day will teach visitors how gorillas, frogs, and armadillos get busy. And just to show you they're serious, no kids are allowed. Have fun, says special events coordinator Rachael Fuller; but not too much fun. "Animals are definitely kept away from the intoxicated guests,"she says. Good thing. You don't want drunk, horny guests anywhere near the monkeys.
