Family-friendly activities are not generally ones in which the goth thrives. Black clothes, heavy makeup and vinyl accessories just aren't generally conducive to warm-weather, daytime or good clean fun — but "Goths at the Zoo" might change all of that.
On September 30, goths will take over the St. Louis Zoo like bats flying into a cave. This event is not sanctioned by the zoo, which makes it all the better. (Have you ever read an official biography? Boring. Unofficial things are always more interesting.)
