Weekdays got you down? How about a pick-me-up at the new Zoo Happy Hour. Get wild Thursday through Sunday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Panda Overlook* (a short walk from the Smithsonian National Zoo's Connecticut Ave. entrance).
Happy Hour specials include buffalo bites, chips and salsa, nachos and cheese, beer, wine and sangria—all $5 each. A bar with select standard mixed drinks is also be available. Proceeds support the Zoo's mission to save species. Drink now, but feel good about it in the morning.
