Every Friday this summer the Utica Zoo has been extending their hours until 7 p.m. and adding extra perks to keep you around like beer and wine, great food by O'Connor's Moveable Feast, yard games and great music as well. This coming Friday is the last hurrah and even features live music by Lillie Ruth. Of course you're welcome to roam the zoo like normal also. You'll just need to finish your adult beverages in the beer and wine garden.

Regular zoo admission applies, as does member benefits. All of the fun starts at 4 p.m. for you to take advantage of!
