This year, get ready for a luau in the jungle!
On Saturday, June 26th, from 5:30 to 8:30 pm, the Sacramento Zoological Society hosts King of Feasts, a food and wine luau. Taste premium local wines, beers and an array of spirits as Sacramento’s dining scene converges on the beautiful grounds of the Sacramento Zoo.
Break out your luau attire and have a unique evening of international aloha-flavor for adults, hosted by the ladies of Good Day Sacramento. Rick Kushman of the Sacramento Bee will share his food and wine knowledge.
It wouldn’t be a complete luau without live Ukulele players, Polynesian dancers and a Classic Tiki Cocktail Mixology Competition put on by the local Bartenders Guild and coordinators of Midtown Cocktail Week. Guests may also indulge in one-of-a-kind items at three separate silent auctions.
