The wonderful people at the Cincinnati Zoo invited Larry and I to visit a few weeks ago. We were able to tour the zoo, meet a special new friend and try some delicious BBQ!
But then we were onto meet a special new friend - up close and personal!!
The zoo is also a great place for beautiful pictures - I'll let you enjoy the next few...
(I'm obsessed with Polar Bears - I could watch them all day long.)
Base Camp Cafe - the largest cafe on the premises - was named the Greenest Restaurant in America for 2015! They had the award a few years ago and I'm sure they are giddy to have that distinction again!
Chef Miller gave us a tasting of their menu offerings - pulled pork, saratoga chips and more. That pulled pork was really good - it was juicy and full of flavor. They also have two different kinds of sauce available. They serve craft beers as well - so you're not stuck with Bud Light here!
If you are heading to the zoo for Hall-ZOO-ween - be sure to stop at the new Smokehouse BBQ Shack because it has AMAZING food selections. You cannot go wrong here. Trust us!!!
Why Should You Go? I love the zoo - it's a reminder of fun times with my new boyfriend six years ago that turned out to be my hubby of five years this weekend! And next time you go - skip the burgers and Skyline - get the BBQ!!! You won't be sorry!
