The Birds & The Bees & The Wild Asses


Despite the evidence offered by mankind's fondness for unnatural devices such as iPhones and neckties, human beings are part of the animal kingdom. We have the same needs and the same drives as our animal relations, we just over-complicate them. Tonight, the Saint Louis Zoo ( requites two of our most basic drives -- food and sex -- with Untamed Hearts: An Intimate Valentine's Day Dinner. You and your sweetie will be treated to a luxe four-course meal (includes bottled wine selection), followed by an entertaining presentation on the many and unusual ways animals attract mates -- it's part educational, part inspirational. Seatings are available at 6 and 8:30 p.m. at the zoo's McDonnell Center at River Camp. The cost is $125 per couple, and reservations are required and must be received by Friday, February 11. Call 314-646-4857 to save your places at the table.
