Let's Talk Dirty to the Animals

Gilda Radner was an inspirational woman who sang this timeless song—if only she were around for The San Francisco Zoo's Woo at the Zoo, the famous guided tour on the sexual behavior of animals, which is taking place just in time for Valentine's Day.
This is the 20th anniversary of this wonderfully fun and informative exploration into animal sexuality. Jane Tollini, the zoo's former penguin keeper, will give an educational and entertaining presentation on the specific behaviors of various animals.
The 'Frisco Zoo is also home to a famous gay penguin couple, Harry and Pepper, who have been together for several years and have maintained a stable relationship (you may have heard of the other famous gay penguins Roy and Silo, of the Central Park Zoo in New York). However according to the zoo's keepers, to the chagrin of some a female penguin has recently wooed Harry away from Pepper, causing a breakup after five years of committed love and affection! Before we get our tails into a twist, we remember that such behavior is natural and it only proves that animals can be bisexual as well as gay, lesbian, and transsexual (some are able to exhibit that characteristic better than others).
This would be a great way to spend a Valentine's date—included in the ticket is a full romantic brunch, including mimosas, eggs, French toast, pastries, chocolate covered strawberries and other surprises. The evening event's menu is beef tenderloin, couscous, sautéed spinch with pine nuts and golden raisins (mmm), salad, and more chocolate dipped strawberries!
Get your reservations now before the event sells out. And a very happy gay Valentine to you all, our faithful readers!
