Happy Halloween! A Brew at the Zoo Review

October 30, 2016

Happy Halloween guys!!  Ok so I admitted on my instagram this weekend that I'm not a fan of Halloween.  It really DOES freak me out, maybe its the masks and not knowing what is under that mask or the bad juju I grew up with around the holiday.  Like egg throwing, stealing candy from kids or maybe its one too many horror movies, I just don't like Halloween!  Ok enough of my venting session, there are many who enjoy it so here is my homage to you.

My friends and I got tickets to Brew at the Zoo, it's when the Bronx Zoo makes a small fortune using a typically unused time frame to have grown people walk around (waiting on really, really long lines) tasting beer and perusing food trucks.

My review...here it goes...I am no beer drinker, I took one for the team so my husband could enjoy some brew. (Thats love my friends!) I think the concept of the event excited me more than the reality.  Which was grazing with lots of waiting.  There WAS however a live band which I ALWAYS appreciate.  They played some covers from The Goo Goo Dolls, Blink 182 and Soundgarden allll music I enjoy so that was a plus.  I enjoyed some really creative home-made costumes, including characters from The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and llamas. The weather was AMAZING!  And of course I was with some of my really good friends and that is always a good time.  Would I do it again? Probably not. But hey I came, I saw, I conquered and lived to blog about it.

My bestie, you will see more of her soon...I got some plans for her and this blog, lol

BOO! She is less scary during the day...

You know those chase scenes where the woman trips on her feet? I think thats what is happening here. 

Thank you for reading!  Share your costume pictures down below, I'd love to see what you came up with!
