Saturday, May 10's Lowdown

For those of you that want to simultaneously experience the fuzzy and the fizzy, you're in luck! Saturday sees the return of Brew at the Zoo, the Sequoia Park Zoo's annual fundraiser pairing beers from regional breweries with close encounters of the animal kind.

Music provided by The Hip Joint and Vintage Rock 'N' Soul. For your other less sudsy Saturday options, explore your Lowdown below.
