Party Animals

May we channel your mom for a sec? You're hmmmty-hmm years old, and it's time to say goodbye to those slimy reptiles, filthy warthogs, and poo-flinging primates -- at least until next year. This is your last chance ´til summer ´08 to cool off at Phoenix Zoo's Starry Safari, an all-ages frolic featuring games, rides, water play, and twilight encounters with some of your favorite animals. (Just don't tell the orangutans about the fun -- they go to bed at 7. You would, too, if someone kept taking away your flashlight and comic books.)
