Don’t get me wrong, I love animals. It’s just that the thought of eating with chimps and gorillas sounds totally repulsive on my end. But perhaps those with a penchant for primates and/or those want to instill some sense of fun and education in their angsty teens might enjoy this upcoming event: a dine-and-learn session hosted by Curator of Primates Sue Margulis, Ph.D. The program includes a lecture, breakfast, and viewing session of primates in their most active time of day, which Lincoln Park Zoo promises will be “the wildest breakfast you’ll ever eat!” The program costs $65 for Lincoln Park Zoo members and $75 for non-members. Children under 12 years of age are not permitted, which makes me suspect potential frisky zoo business.
