I may have teased Matthew a lot last year when he admitted to never having seen the Date Night at the Zoovies movie: The Breakfast Club. Well, turnabout is fair play, because I somehow have never seen this year’s movie selection in its entirety: Back to the Future!
Go ahead, mock me now.
OK, now that we’re done with that, let’s talk about Cleveland Zoological Society’s Date Night at the Zoovies. On Friday, August 23, head to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo for a fun charity event to benefit the Cleveland Zoological Society. From 7-8:30pm, you can check out the Australian Adventure and African Savanna exhibits, while mingling and enjoying beer, wine, and light appetizers.
At 8:30pm, head over to the Zoo’s amphitheater to go Back to the Future. Seats are first come, first served, so bring a blanket or lawn chairs just in case. There will be movie-themed snacks too, including hot pretzels and candy.
This is a really relaxed, fun way to spend a Friday evening! Tickets are $35 for individual tickets or $60 for 2 tickets and can be purchased online. Or you can enter to win 2 tickets right here!
Here’s how to enter. You can do as many of the entries as you want, just leave a SEPARATE comment for each entry.
1. Leave a comment telling me your favorite line or scene from Back to the Future (or admit you’ve never seen it, just like me).
2. Leave a comment if you are fan of both the Cleveland Zoological Society and Why CLE? on Facebook, letting me know you are. If you’re not, you can become a fan of the Zoological Society here and Why CLE? here.
4. Tweet the following phrase and leave a comment letting me know you tweeted:
I want to go Back to the Future at @CleveZooSociety’s #DateNightattheZoovies with @WhyCLE: http://wp.me/p1fb9r-1CJ
You can tweet once per day for additional entries, just leave a separate comment each time you tweet.
The giveaway will close at 11:59pm on Thursday, August 1 and the winner will be announced the following day. Good luck!
