Sure, just keep it away from the lions. Ha! Thank you, thank you, I'm here all week!
The Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago is asking the city council for a license to sell beer and wine. Not in carts in the middle of the zoo but at the restaurants on the zoo site (they already serve alcohol at a restaurant just outside of the zoo). They want to be able to serve beer and wine at the zoo's cafeteria and the Big Cat's Cafe, which is near the lion's cage (and I swear I made the above joke before I even read that part).
Is this a good idea? Sure, revenue would increase to $300,000-400,000, but shouldn't there just be some places in this country where alcohol isn't a part of the equation?
