Grapes (By Which We Mean Wine) with the Apes

The apes, however, won't actually be drinking.

    Keep in mind that Kibibi is only two, and therefore too young to be a drinking companion.

    Party with the primates! And no, we don't mean former frat brothers.

    The National Zoo will host Grapes with the Apes on Thursday, Sept. 22 (6-9 p.m.), during which you can sample wines from both local and national wineries while gaining after-hours access to the Great Ape House.

    Proceeds from the event support the primates and conservation science, so go ahead and take home your favorite Pinot!

    Tickets ($55 general; $100 VIP) include all wine samplings, a commemorative glass, live music and the chance to learn more about great apes and ongoing projects to support endangered species from zoo experts.
