Summer is coming to a close, but there's still one more Jammin' at the Zoo event. If you missed the first one, you can catch drinks, live music, food and of course, animals tonight, August 28, at the Saint Louis Zoo (Forest Park; 314-781-0900).

The main event is a wine and beer sampling from 6 to 8 p.m. featuring over 200 wines from 50 wineries, and, for the first time, both of this summer's events offered a selection of St. Louis microbrews.
You can buy the normal zoo food (hot dogs, nachos), but there will be an extended menu as well. Guests are also welcome to bring a picnic basket, though no outside alcoholic beverages are allowed. Tasting package tickets are $10 for zoo members and $20 for non-members; if you just want to come and chill (or buy your own drinks), it's free for members and $10 for non-members.
The jammin' part of the night will be live music courtesy of Groove Thang, Griffin & The Gargoyles, My Friend Mike and Boogie Chyld. You can buy tickets at the door or call 314-646-4771.
