Lohr Vineyards & Wines, plus specialty retailers such as Georgetown Cupcake and Edward Marc Chocolatier. In the exclusive LivingSocial Lion Lounge, decked out like a vintage carnival, you'll find a zydeco band, a photo booth, and "adult" versions of limeade and chocolate milk. Former Top Chef contestants Mike Isabella (Graffiato) and Spike Mendelsohn (Good Stuff Eatery; We, the Pizza) as well as Todd Gray (Equinox, Watershed) will make appearances.
No party is complete without dessert, and Isabella, Gray, and Mendelsohn will close out the evening by judging a pastry competition. The challenge: create the best cake—with a zoo theme, of course. Follow @FONZNationalZoo, #ZooFari
