Animals eating—it's a common sight at the Milwaukee County Zoo. Bactrian camels gently munch hay. Gorillas pluck grapes from the ground and plop them in their mouths. And you watch. But at this popular food and music event, where food vendors are located throughout Zoo grounds, the animals might be the ones watching you eat. There are also national musical acts every night on the Caribou Stage. On Thursday check out JGB featuring Melvin Seals; Friday features Ed Kowalczyk (former lead singer of Live); Saturday features The Family Stone, and Sunday features the 52nd Street Band. The entire park and all animal buildings will be open at night (the Herb & Nada Mahler Family Aviary closes at dusk). Remember to check out the special summer exhibit, Sting Ray & Shark Bay, sponsored by Sendik's Food Markets. Admission is $2 per person. Food vendors include Jake's Deli, Trinity Three Irish Pubs, Water Street Brewery, Aladdin, Charcoal Grill, Alioto's, Wong's Wok, Applebees, Saz's and many more. Remember to cast your vote for your favorite restaurant through U.S. Cellular®'s Fan Favorite Text Vote (must be at least 18 to vote).
