Zoobilee 2018

Posted on September 26, 2018 by under Events.    

As much as we say we’re not going to go to Zoobilee again, we always have so much fun. It’s definitely our favorite event to end summer and officially kick off fall. And, despite thinking each year will be our last, we’ve yet to miss one of these since we started attending in 2009. This year marked our 10th consecutive one.

We wouldn’t have gone this year because I didn’t buy tickets. I figured I was getting to old to hang with the YPW folks and felt guilty about buying through their group. They have a really nice private party set up though and early entry so if you’re buying tickets, YPW is definitely the way to go. For the same price, you get in much earlier and don’t have to stand in the ridiculously long line.

Anyway, some of my coworkers got free tickets through work. I was not special enough to get one. The Zoobilee tickets are so popular that there are never any leftovers. I’ve only ever gotten free tickets from work once in the ten years we’ve been going. In the past we’ve attended by volunteering, which I very highly recommend if you want to partake but are limited on cash, or buying our own tickets through the YPW group.

This year Isaac and Crystal decided not to go. I think they had something else going on that day. I ended up inheriting his tickets and so Brian and I were able to attend, though we totally had not planned it.

I may not be the most spontaneous person but I’m always ready for a party. LOL.

Here’s a picture of Brian in line for his first drink of the evening. Success!

So Brian’s face doesn’t look it but he actually has a lot of fun at these events (most of the time). There was one year we attended despite me having a massive headache and we still had a blast. We went because we didn’t want the tickets to go to waste.

Here’s a picture of us with Josh and his wife Jessica pretty early in the evening.

Cox Communications had a special sports bar area this year that neither of us remember seeing in years past. We both think it was new this year.

Here’s a picture of us with Johnson, my new favorite massage therapist at Sveta’s.

Here’s a picture of us with Sveta herself and my original favorite massage therapist Michael. He’s not working at Sveta’s anymore but still helps out for special events.

Another group photo, this time with Richard and his wife.

And then, finally, a selfie of just the two of us.

So there you have it. Another fun Zoobilee event in the books. Until next year — or maybe not. LOL.
