Zoo Gala 2014

This past Saturday night was the annual Zoo Gala benefitting the Birmingham Zoo.  We go to this event every year (my company is a sponsor) and love it!  It’s held at the zoo (duh) and the atmosphere is so much fun.  The food is always delicious and the decorations amazing.  We really lucked out with the weather this year and could not have had a more beautiful night.  It’s really a great event and supports a wonderful cause.  We love our city zoo!  Below are a few pictures if you would like to see…

They always have several of the animals out and about amongst the attendees, although I could do without the snakes.

It was a Moroccan theme and the colors were beautiful.

Hummus, pita, spiced nuts, vegetables, couscous, quinoa, special cheeses and crackers, grilled vegetable and shrimp kabobs, and then several chicken and lamb dishes that I obviously did not try, but Matt said were amazing. For dessert there was a cheesecake bar!
